A woman sued Borders Books after a poorly attached toilet seat shifted, leaving her "permanently disfigured." She claimed that as she was sitting and touched the seat to steady herself, the seat shifted abruptly, causing her to fall on her backside, which resulted in "multiple spine injuries, including the need for multiple neurosurgical spine surgeries."

Apparently, someone needs to tell her lawyer the definition of "disfigured."

Named in the lawsuit were the bookstore and the company which subcontracted the service and maintenance of the bathrooms. The victim is asking for over $100,000 in damages.
