A Fly in the Ointment

… or in this case, a fly in the water.

A Windsor resident found a fly in a bottle of Culligan water. Mind you, he never opened the bottle or drank from it. He sued Culligan and was awarded $341,000 for mental distress. The provincial court of appeal overturned the award. Now, the Supreme Court of Canada will hear the case.

Remember … no one ever opened the bottle. They just saw the fly in there.
