I decided to dismiss Michelle’s claim.
Although I sympathized with Michelle for her frustrating and stressful experience, the cable show should not in my opinion be held responsible simply because it gave its viewers the name of Max’s Supermarket as the source of the product.
Mistakes happen, but they do not always result in damage.
There was no physical assault in the case, and her verbal dispute with the store’s staff, while bad enough, is not sufficient to support a claim for damages in Small Claims Court.
Do you agree?
