Lindon family hires attorney in E. coli lawsuit

Seattle attorney William Marler is representing Jeffrey Merkey of Lindon, who filed a lawsuit last week after he claimed his son got extremely sick when he was fed spinach.

As a result, Merkey’s son spent several weeks in intensive care at Primary Children’s Medical Center for severe kidney damage as a result of contracting E. coli-based hemolytic uremic syndrome.

KUTV reports that Marler has a history working on E. coli lawsuits. In 1993, he was lead attorney against "Jack in the Box" for an E. coli outbreak. He has also filed several lawsuits against Natural Selections foods in the recent spinach controversy.
