Stupid lawsuit of the day: Son hurt, Pa. woman sues Crocs firm.
A Pennsylvania mother yesterday filed a multimillion-dollar federal lawsuit against the makers of the popular Crocs footwear after her 6-year-old son’s shoe was caught and trapped in an escalator at the National Aquarium in Baltimore this spring, mangling his right big toe.
Kerry Burdick, who lives in Eagleville, Pa., claims Colorado-based Crocs Inc. knew its foam clogs were unsafe for escalator travel yet did nothing to warn the public, according to the lawsuit, which seeks more than $7.5 million in damages. It was filed yesterday morning in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
