Lawsuits Filed Against Alabama Day Care Over Child Illnesses

June 29, 2015

Parents have filed two lawsuits against a Montgomery, Alabama day care where health officials say nearly 90 children suffered suspected food poisoning this week.

Court documents show the suits were filed last week within minutes of each other against Sunnyside Day Care.

Neerita Moore claims she went to pick up her 4-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter at Sunnyside on Tuesday and found them both ill. The suit claims the woman entered the facility to find sick children on the floor covered in vomit and excrement.

Janelle Hamilton’s suit says her son was among the sick. She claims two hospital emergency rooms treated so many sick children they looked like war zones, and the mayor even visited.

The day care’s owners haven’t filed responses. But health officials have shut down the center.
