Man suing Canfield Panera over hot coffee

YOUNGSTOWN — A Canfield man has sued a Panera Bread restaurant, saying it negligently provided him with excessively hot coffee, failed to give him a lid for his coffee cup and caused him to be burned when the coffee spilled on a wobbly restaurant table Feb. 18, 2008.

Andrew G. Bresko, of Lisbon Street, sued Panera Bread, 4205 Boardman-Canfield Road, in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court.

The suit, filed earlier this week, seeking more than $25,000 in damages and demanding a jury trial, is assigned to Judge Maureen A. Sweeney. A call seeking comment from Covelli Enterprises of Warren, Panera’s franchisee, was not returned.
