On march 31st, I went into Furr's and sat down at the bench in the entry way to feed ds. The manager came up maybe 15 minutes into the feeding and touched my shoulder and told me I had to cover up.
I told her that there are laws protecting me. She said she knew and wouldn't leave me alone until he was done. (5-10 minutes).
I was using the 2 shirt method and nothing was showing. Mil was with me and even told me nothing was showing.
At Furr's, you have to get your food and pay before sitting down. As you probably know, it's not easy to nurse in a booth.



My Df said I need to hire an attorney and sue Furr's for harassment and pain and suffering.
Would it even get anywhere?

Eh....I don't think it's worth it. It would probably be a lot of money & time spent on it You said you were getting media coverage, right? That plus a nurse in would be enough, IMO.

Sucks that happened!

Pain and suffering though? I don't know. I'd skip the lawsuit. But I'm one to think lawsuits are too plentiful in the USA. Just my opinion though and it doesn't matter.

There are a lot of attorneys around here that do free or pro bono work.
