Tim Emberton sued Red Lobster and its employee, Carissa Phelps. He claimed he caught Hepatitis-A from Phelps when she served him on July 28, 2001.
A Warren Circuit Court jury found Red Lobster liable, and awarded Emberton $8,666.05 in medical expenses, and $225,000 for pain and suffering. But the jury said Carissa Phelps was not liable.
Judge Steve Wilson dismissed the Barren River District Health Department from the suit. He said there was insufficient evidence of wrongdoing on their part.
