The Ohio Democratic representative is suing House cafeteria service providers for $150,000 for allegedly selling him a sandwich wrap with a stray olive pit in it.
He said he is entitled to recover damages, "including but not limited to past and future dental and medical expenses, compensation for pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment and other damage."
The suit claims the sandwich wrap in question was purchased "on or about April 17, 2008."

I wonder why it took him till now to file since the incident took place in April 2008. Since he has medical insurance, if he wins will he pay back the insurance company for what they paid out. Without the details of the injury other than the law suit statement, I think 150K is a bit much. The loss of "enjoyment" must have been not being able to bs in Congressional meetings.
