MANSFIELD, Texas (AP) – A Texas lawyer upset that he wasn’t provided a cup of soup during a recent meal has notified a restaurant owner that he’ll sue if not reimbursed the $2.25 for the soup.
Dwain Downing also is seeking $250 in attorney fees for the time spent drafting a letter sent to Benji Arslanovski, who operates Our Place Restaurant in the Fort Worth suburb of Mansfield.READ MORE: Man Stopped In March For Stolen Scratch-Off Tickets Now Facing Additional Drug And Firearm Charges
Downing says the soup was listed on the menu as part of a Saturday special. He says the restaurant offered no discount or substitution when it ran out.Judge Asked To Order Arrest Of Witnesses In Triple Slaying Retrial Of Olympic Gymnast Simone Biles Brother
The lawyer argued the menu amounts to a contract with the customer and Arslanovski violated the terms of the contract.
