Wolfgang Puck Sued After Waitress Allegedly Gives Customer Concussion

TMZ reports that a diner named Tamara Mason-Williams is suing Wolfgang Puck after getting a side of concussion with her dinner at the chef's Washington, DC restaurant The Source.

Mason-Williams was allegedly sitting at a table in the Asian-fusion eatery when a waitress in the restaurant accidentally clonked her over the head with a heavy metal pitcher, giving her a concussion. She blames Puck for failing to adequately train his staff, and is now suing, according to TMZ, for unspecified damages to compensate for "lost income and medical expenses."

Puck, who owns more restaurants than any other celebrity chef, is no stranger to lawsuits involving his employees. But most of the others ones in recent years have been filed by employees, many of whom accused him of discrimination, not customers.
