Russian Man Sues McDonald’s for Food Poisoning; Gets 50 Whole Dollars and Free Burger

A Russian customer has beaten fast-food giant McDonald’s in court for a second time. He suffered food poisoning after eating a Big Mac, and was awarded damages.

McDonald’s challenged the decision, but a higher court again backed the Nizhny Novgorod resident. He will have his legal expenses covered and receive 1,500 rubles in damages ($50) plus the cost of the burger he ate.

He is not the first Russian to have won damages from McDonald’s.
