Marcrida Patterson, 52, says she was trying on the Victoria's Secret undergarment when a metallic embellishment attached to a thong popped off and hit her in the eye. Now she wants the company to pay.
I have many questions as a consumer, woman, and attorney.
Was she putting the thing on her head? Practicing yoga in the dressing room? Why was she trying on a g-string? I didn't realize people tried on thongs, and I am traumatized by the news.
This is a "products liability" case alleging the g-string was defective. I must ask her attorney, defective for what purpose? Should the product have a label that says, "Do not attempt to wear as a hat"? "This product was not created for use as a slingshot"? "Do not attempt to put g-string on at lightning speeds that will cause jewels to ricochet in your face"?
I don't get it. This Vuv thinks this is just taking "litigious-ness" to new levels and the plaintiff, Ms. Patterson, should simplify her life by dropping the suit and either dropping the panties or choosing less-adorned ones.
