A Strange Story and Lawsuit

Okay, on Oct 30, 2005 a gent recovering from heart surgery was in a Home Depot and needed to use a bathroom. One of the employees (I am guess as the article didn't specify that this was the supposition) put some type of contact adhesive, as a prank, on the toilet seat in the men's restroom. The customer sat on the toilet and then couldn't get off because of the glue.

He called for help, for about 15 minutes, but no one came to help because they all thought it was a joke. When they did respond they need an ambulance to come and remove the toilet seat to get the gent out of the store. When the seat was finally removed it left several abrasions on the customer's behind.

He has decided to file a lawsuit against Home Depot because of the lack of immediate response by the employees. He also made this comment "This is not Home Depot's fault, but I am blaming them for letting me hang in there and just ignoring me." Doesn't this statement sort of take away the whole point of filing a lawsuit against Home Depot, after all he wants to hold Home Depot responsible for something he is saying isn't their fault?
