Image of the Day: Private Sector Pharmaceutical Investment Propels Innovation

Coffee, Tea...or a Lawsuit? Print
Thursday, August 19 2010

A New York City cafe was sued by a Manhattan mom who claims she was traumatized when the restaurant manager ordered her to stop breastfeeding her child.
 
Julia Acevedo-Taylor claims she and a friend were being as discreet as possible when they were nursing their "hungry and tired" babies.  In the lawsuit filed against Lily O'Brien's Chocolate Cafe, Acevedo-Taylor claims that they were told to "leave and never come back" after the women refused the manager's request to stop nursing their babies.
 
According to the suit, Acevedo-Taylor fled the store in tears and was so traumatized she can no longer nurse in public.
 
The store's owner counters that no one was asked to leave, but rather that the general manager asked if they could cover up following complaints by other customers.  A sign on the door of the cafe reads, "breast-feeding welcome here."
