The Sweet Smell of (Legal) Success

November 27th, 2008 · 99 Comments

Disability is a huge tragedy in our reality. What’s even more tragic are the people willing to cash in on this unfortunate right at the expense of others just because they wear lousy perfume.

A woman can pursue a civil disability lawsuit against her employer because of the smell of her co-worker’s perfume, according to the AP.

The woman claims she has a sensitivity to perfume and the scent of her co-worker prevented her from breathing. The employer plans to claim the “he who smelt it, dealt it” defense.

The woman claims the co-worker also used a room deodorizer that contributed to her condition. Geez, perfume and a room deodorizer? Did they also work next to a smelting plant?
