Giant Eagle facing 34 lawsuits over mask policy, including at least 5 from area | Coronavirus | tribdem.com

Giant Eagle is being sued by 34 people across western Pennsylvania – including five from Greater Johnstown – who alleged company employees often used aggressive measures to enforce what plaintiffs call an “illegal” mask policy.

The lawsuit includes allegations by customers across western Pennsylvania suffering from different medical conditions.

The plaintiffs include a Pittsburgh-area woman with respiratory issues who said she “passed out” and hit her head in a Butler County store’s checkout line because she wore a mask to comply; a Crawford County woman alleging an employee struck her with a shopping cart after she removed her mask inside a Meadville store; and a Venango County man who said a police officer injured his neck after the store reported him for trespassing.
