On June 25, 2004, Marler Clark filed a Class Action lawsuit against Friendly’s International on behalf of more than 1,500 persons who were required to get Hepatitis A vaccinations following possible exposure to the virus at a Friendly’s restaurant in Arlington, Mass. The Town of Arlington Board of Health issued a warning and call for people to receive shots after it was learned that an employee of the restaurant was infected with Hepatitis A.
The hepatitis A lawyers at Marler Clark reached a settlement with Friendly's, and checks in the amount of $200 per person were mailed to those who opted into the Class Action lawsuit.
