Shake Shack Sued Over Dog Tied To Chair
Shake Shack chain allowed one of its customers to tie his dog to one of the chairs and got sued in return. The lawsuit was filed by Cindy Cirlin, who visited one of the Shake Shack outlets in Upper East Side of Manhattan, and got attacked by the dog.
The lawsuit was filed in a Manhattan Supreme Court and Cirlin has accused Shake Shack of being “negligent in its failure to protect [Cirlin] from the anticipated dangers of allowing dogs to be attached by leashes to its flimsy and unanchored chairs.” The dog was chained to one of the outlets’ chairs when it attacked the woman. Just like Shake Shack’s other outlets, this one too is canine-friendly and even offers dog biscuits on its regular menu. However, the culprit in question is the lightweight, portable chair, one of the many placed across the large garden plaza restaurant.
Cindy claims to have got injured when a dog, tied to one of the restaurant’s chairs, knocked her down. She called the restaurant chairs “flimsy and unanchored” and demanded $2million in damages.
Shake Shack is yet to respond but the fast food chain should be thankful that the lawsuit was against its interior décor and not its menu.
