Business Insider Picks Up Story of Ron Simon & Associates Chipotle Norovirus Lawsuit Against a Background of Allegations Sick Employees Were Compelled to Work

Business Insider, WTOP, Ashburn Patch, and many other news stations, have been reporting on the Chipotle norovirus lawsuit file by Ron Simon & Associates on behalf of Kyle Hogan and Patrick Moore.  The Chipotle norovirus lawsuit alleges that both men contracted norovirus food poisoning after eating at the Sterling Virginia location of Chipotle Mexican Grill.  This is the most recent in a series of food borne illness outbreaks to face Chipotle Mexican grill in recent years, including other norovirus outbreaks  – the two that Ron Simon & Associates were heavily involved in included the ones in Baltimore and in Simi Valley, California, both in 2015.  Ron Simon & Associates was also involved in E. coli food borne illness outbreak linked to Chipotle Mexican Grill in 2015.

WTOP also reported that at least two of the many victims tested positive for norovirus – a fact Chipotle did not deny.  WTOP also reported that the quick attribution of the illnesses to norovirus lies in part with advances in norovirus detection:

What used to be called “food poisoning” is now, in many cases, being diagnosed as norovirus, said the director of the Loudoun County Health Department in the wake of a recent outbreak at the Chipotle Mexican Grill in Sterling, Virginia.

According to Dr. David Goodfriend, a diagnosis of norovirus usually was the default when no other source was identified (such as E. coli or salmonella).  But now, he indicates, advances in testing allow local and state health departments to quickly identify and name the culprit for what it is without relying solely on differential diagnosis.
