“…(plainfiff) was injured earlier this year at the chain’s 86th and Lexington location when a dog “attached” to one of the restaurant’s chairs knocked her down…Shake Shack “was negligent in its failure to protect [Cirlin] from the anticipated dangers of allowing dogs to be attached by leashes to its flimsy and unanchored chairs…”
A Manhattan woman claims the Upper East Side outlet of the famed burger and hot-dog chain was a little too friendly to canine clients and their owners. Cindy Cirlin says she was injured when she was knocked down by a dog that was leashed to one of the East 86th Street restaurant’s chairs, according to a Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit filed last week.
Cirlin wants $2 million in damages. Shake Shack did not respond to a request for comment.
