Taco John's E. coli Outbreak LawsuitsThe E. coli lawyers at Marler Clark filed a lawsuit on behalf of a Cedar Falls, Iowa, family whose nine-year-old daughter was hospitalized with an E. coli infection and hemolytic uremic syndrome on December 14, 2006. The firm later filed two additional lawsuits against Taco John's, one on behalf of a Waterloo, Iowa, woman, and one on behalf of an Albert Lea, Minnesota, child. The firm represented several other individuals who became ill after eating at Taco John's restaurants in Iowa and Minnesota.
