Lawsuit claims harm from shards in drink at restaurant


Geppettos’s Pizza and Ribs, along with Johnny Malloy’s, are being sued for $25,000 after a customer alleged she consumed a beverage that was “contaminated with pieces of glass.”

Wellington resident Trina Keger was a patron at the restaurant on or about March 5, 2012, when she was given a beverage that allegedly contained glass shards.

According to the case filed in Lorain County Common Pleas Court on Friday, Keger suffered various injuries, including but not limited to her esophagus and stomach.

Keger is seeking $25,000 as she has suffered “pain, physical impairment and mental anguish” and expects to suffer more in the future. The case also contends that she has “sustained a loss of enjoyment of life.”

The court filing did not specify the location of the restaurant.

Keger has requested a jury trial for all issues.
