A Webster Groves man has filed a lawsuit against Michael's Bar & Grill (7101 Manchester Avenue), alleging that he relied on inaccurate information from servers in ordering its gyro salad — and that the gluten in the dish he ordered has left him with "severe and permanent injuries."
The details are left rather vague in the suit, which suggests the meat-topped salad led to near-catastrophe for Phillip "Gus" Wagner. His attorney alleges that Wagner was
injured in one or more of the following respects to wit: injuries to the cardiovascular system, gastrointestinal tract, internal organs, respiratory system and body as a whole; that he sustained an aggravation of a pre-existing condition; that said injuries are permanent and permanently disabling; that he has experienced pain and suffering in the past and is reasonably certain to experience pain and suffering in the future; that he has expended money for necessary medical care, treatment and services in the past and is reasonably certain to expend money for necessary medical care, treatment and services in the future resulting from said occurrence; that he has lost the ordinary gains of his employment and will lose further such sums in the future; that he has sustained loss of a normal life...Wagner's attorney, Christine Anderson of Faerber and Anderson, did not respond to a call seeking comment yesterday.
