E. coli Lawyer Bill Marler Fights on Behalf of Victims

E. coli lawyer Bill Marler began fighting for the victims of foodborne illness in 1993, when he represented Brianne Kiner, the most seriously injured survivor of the Jack in the Box E. coli O157:H7 outbreak, in her landmark $15.6 million settlement with the company. The 2011 book, Poisoned: The True Story of the Deadly E. coli Outbreak that Changed the Way Americans Eat, chronicles the Jack in the Box outbreak and Bill’s role in a case that would change history. Since 1993, the E. coli lawyer has fought for victims both in the courtroom and in the halls of Congress, advocating for a safer food supply.
