I don't like little pointless lawsuits, but I actually kind of like this one. If an omnivore was served poop or human meat, they'd sue and everyone would cheer them on, so I'm glad these people are suing and I hope they win

It is only because they are vegetarian for religious reasons that it's being taken seriously at all.</div>

A step in the right direction is still a step.

I don't see it as a step in the <i>right</i> direction to give the religious special privileges.

If the waiter did it knowingly, that's wrong. But suing? yet another lawsuit to add on to the stack. sigh.

I'm a little puzzled that people with such demanding faith-based dietary laws (requiring a trip to the Ganges) would patronize a restaurant that served meat at all.<br><br>
I'm going to find a restaurant that proscribes cleansing rituals in Tahiti and start eating out more.

Expecting them to pay for a trip to the Ganges is a bit much.</div>

I agree with both of these. If it was a mistake, an apology would suffice. If they were feeling kind, a free meal or similar would be good of them.<br><br>
If it was intentional, I still wouldn't sue myself, but I can understand it. For example, if someone systematically put meat in vegetarian meals, that's wrong. Then again, perhaps that's already illegal? I don't know.

A lot of restaurants near me put fish in the vegetarian section of menu so I check the food myself before I eat it. Personally I think its a bit much, I'd just not eat it and ask for my money back, being sued doesn't show respect and its just ammo for the fools that have commented on that post below.
