Rep Kucinich settles out of court for olive pit incident

When news hit the wires two days ago about the Dennis Kucinich (pictured) lawsuit because of an olive pit, the story failed to mention that the incident happened three years ago!

Before settling today, Kucinich was seeking $150,000 in damages, plus interest and costs, from Restaurant Associates, which manages the cafeteria, and three other businesses that stock and help run the operation.

The suit said that Kucinich “sustained serious and permanent dental and oral injuries requiring multiple surgery and oral procedures” and claims Kucinich has sustained other damages, “including significant pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment.”

Yes, yes - can't forget the "loss of enjoyment" part.
