Munich, Germany (AP) A German court has rejected an employee's demand that an irate customer pay damages for throwing a half-eaten kebab at her.
The claim stems from an altercation in June in which a kebab customer unsuccessfully demanded his money back. He says he then tossed the food behind the counter.
The employee claims the customer called her a “stupid cow” and aimed the kebab at her. She says she narrowly avoided the flying kebab and wants at least $390 in damages.
The court in Munich said in a ruling made public today that the employee failed to prove her claim and that it doesn't matter anyway.
The ruling says she's not entitled to damages because being targeted with a kebab does not constitute a “serious violation ... of human dignity and honor.”
