Judge tosses bar-code scanner suit

A judge in Pennsylvania Wednesday dismissed a lawsuit brought on behalf of a girl claiming she was hurt by a bar-code scanner at a convenience store…

Dominica Juliano and her guardian, Ginnisue Juliano, claimed a clerk at a Country Fair store in Erie waved the hand-held scanner over the girl’s face during a June 2004 visit to try to get her to smile. The lawsuit claimed Dominica, who was 12 at the time, suffered facial burns that led to serious psychological problems, the newspaper said.

The scanner could not have caused the injuries because it is an LED light and not a laser.

Who was more of a crook? The lawyer who told these folks they could win this suit? But, then, they went looking for a lawyer, right?
