Bizarre Lawsuit Against Petsmart

Widow sues Petsmart over husband’s death
Claims pet retailer’s sick hamster infected him after a liver transplant
According to a Reuters article, A widow is suing Petsmart Inc, saying that her husband died after a liver transplant that was contaminated by a sick hamster sold by the largest U.S. specialty pet retailer to the organ donor.
The suit, filed in Massachusetts Superior Court in February, seeking unspecified damages, moved up to U.S. District Court in Boston this week.
In papers filed in the state court, Nancy Magee charged that a Petsmart in Warwick, Rhode Island in March 2005 sold a hamster infected with lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus, or LCMV, to a woman not named in the suit.
That woman later died of stroke and her liver was implanted in Magee's husband, Thomas, in April 2005. A month later, Thomas Magee died of LCMV.
Two other people who received organs from this woman died and one became seriously ill, the suit says, noting that medical authorities later tracked down the hamster in question and found it to be infected with LCMV.

Petsmart spokeswoman Jessica Douglas said the Phoenix, Arizona-based company does not comment on pending litigation.

Wow, I'm surprised they can even prove that.

This is the most ridiculous lawsuit; even if PetSmart warned the owner of the hamster, what is to say that her organs would not have been donated anyway when she died (obviously she was an organ donor); maybe they should sue the hospital that okayed the organs for donation or the family of the organ donor (they are in the blame line ahead of PetSmart). What is this lawsuit going to improve, except for the bottom line of the suer.
