Do You Think This Law Suit Has Merit?

Somehow I don’t think this is worthily of a law suit, just because he was embarrassed is no reason to sue.

DOVER, Del. — A Delaware man who underwent a colonoscopy awoke after the procedure to find he was wearing pink women's underwear, according to a lawsuit.

Plaintiff Andrew Walls, of Dover, Del., was not pleased, or amused, and this month filed a civil suit in New Castle County Superior Court against the Delaware Surgery Center in Dover seeking damages for intentional infliction of emotional distress.

According to the complaint, Walls went to the Delaware Surgery Center on Oct. 12, 2012, for a colonoscopy and as part of the procedure was placed under anesthesia.

"When the plaintiff recovered from the effects of the anesthesia administered by defendants, he awoke to realize that while he was unconscious pink women's underwear had been placed on his body," according to the suit. "When the plaintiff initially presented for his colonoscopy he had not been wearing pink women's underwear and at no time did the plaintiff voluntarily, knowingly or intentionally place the pink women's underwear upon himself."
Horrors of horrors!

He sure wouldn’t want me on the jury, talk about frivolous law suits. I would be mad being call to jury duty to hear the case.
