Woman Sues Over Bird Attack
EAST ST. LOUIS, IL-January 5, 2006 -- This lawsuit was for the birds.
That's the gist of a ruling from a federal judge who has tossed out a suit by a woman who claims she was attacked by a bird at a Lowe's store.
Rhonda Nichols wanted at least 75-thousand dollars from Lowe's, charging the home improvement retailer should have warned about dangerous birds.
Nichols claimed head, brain and neck injuries, following the April 2003 incident at the suburban St. Louis store.
But the judge ruled a reasonable person would know that birds might be around any outdoor area with plants.
