Wolfgang Puck Sued for Crappy Dining Experience

4/28/2009 3:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Wolfgang Puck is being sued over a restaurant bathroom -- not because a woman claims it was covered in "urine and feces" -- but because someone allegedly ripped her off the crapper while she was in mid-squat.


The woman claims she just wanted to take care of some toilet business during a lunch at Puck's most famous Beverly Hills restaurant, Spago back in 2007. But according to the lawsuit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, the bathroom floor was covered in "standing pools of urine and feces" -- and the only usable toilet didn't have a lock on the door.

Here's where it gets messy -- the woman, Majorie Linden, claims she had to use one of her hands to hold the door closed while she took care of business on the throne. But mid-squat, with her hand stuck firmly on the handle, another woman allegedly yanked the door open causing Linden to fall "face-first onto the tile floor."

Marjorie claims the fall broke her back, messed up her knee, and caused serious mental damage -- among other things. Needless to say, she's suing.

But reps for Spago claim the woman is completely full of crap when it comes to the cleanliness of their bathrooms -- "In our 27 years of business we've never had an issue close to this ... that portion of the claim is totally without merit."

Wolfgang Puck sales an so-called organtic canned soup commercially, with ungodly amounts of sodium in it. He should be ashamed of himself!!!

Note that they said never in their 27 years of business, did they have anything "close to this" . That sounds like they did have similar incidents, but not as bad.

One of the classiest restaurants have a bathroom this way? I don't believe it in a minute. I hear and read that's where all the celebrities go and they wouldn't if the place is what the woman described. As far as her sueing, people are sue-happy anymore and I hope she loses. Remember those girls who said that McDonald's made them fat and tried to sue? It's sad anymore....

Hey, it can happen to any restaurant and it has nothing to do with class. A toilet could have overflowed just before the woman entered and the staff didn't even know about it yet. The restaurant is still liable. It's been my experience that the upscale restaurants are always the ones with broken stall locks too.

Nah, holding onto a bathroom stall door while someone is pulling would NOT result in you baing knocked to the floor and breaking body parts. Sounds like she fell off of a ladder while at home and then decided to sue Puck. I know someone who actually did this while he worked for UPS. He then claimed he hurt himself at work and collected from his job. And soon everyone in the family talked about the accident as if it had happened that way, despite the fact that I'd seen the actual accident occur.
