Eight people suing co-worker for urinating in coffee pot
April 18, 2003 (Whitestown, New York) ? Peeing in a coffee pot could cost millions.
Eight people are suing for $600,000 apiece, in the case of a __PO'ed__ office worker who peed in the pot.
Holly Jones pleaded guilty to misdemeanor count of creating a criminal nuisance.
State police say a hidden camera caught Jones urinating in the coffee at Robinson Aviation in upstate New York.
Now, her co-workers are suing Jones and their employer.
The suit charges the coffee-drinkers were made sick by the contaminated java. The court action also claims the company should have done more to protect its employees.
According to police, Jones was angry about being passed over for a promotion.

Drinking urine in and of itself will not make you sick. Several tribes around the world do it as a part of rituals. If they got sick, it was probably a mental response to finding out they had beed drinking pee. Repulsion got the best of them, not physical reaction. And the heat from the coffee would kill any microbes.
I don't think the lawsuit is going to yield much other than a slap on the wrist, and a interesting blooper on her criminal record.

Mental damages (psychologist's evidence required).
All damages proceed on the basis that one takes one's
victim as one finds them, anticipating that among them,
somebody may have a terribly adverse reaction. It's a
thin skin rule or something like that.

I see a flaw here already.
Drinking urine in and of itself will not make you sick. Several tribes around the world do it as a part of rituals.
You're right. The "inventor" of the macrobiotic diet, a Japanese guru of some sort, used to drink his own urine when getting up in the morning.
