Mysterious Liquid Goop in Oregon Parking Garage Behind Lawsuit

August 22, 2016

A Portland, Ore., woman has filed a $10,000 lawsuit against a parking garage owner after alleging that a mysterious liquid dropped onto her forearm while standing next to her parked car.

According to the lawsuit filed in early August, Shoshanna Doty says that the liquid landed on her right arm after parking her car in a Portland parking garage last year. Doty argues that the liquid later resulted in unexplained injuries, such as muscle spasms, swelling and numbness.

Doty’s Portland attorney, Mark Ginsberg, said that the Bill Naito Co. has not identified the source of the liquid. Instead, Ginsberg says that the parking garage owner admitted that they had been paying claims for a liquid that had been damaging people’s cars.

Bill Naito Company did not return requests for comment.

Doty is seeking nearly $400 in lost income and more than $8,000 for pain and suffering. Her suit also seeks attorney’s fees.
