Digit disabled by honey

It could only happen in the USA. Miami Beach, Florida to be precise. It's a case of bees, a swarm, honey and allegedly “gross negligence” -- oh yes and a $1.4 million law suit focusing on a disabled digit:
Explains attorney Michael C Gongora: “The defendant Valerie Schields was attacked by a swarm of bees early in the day on September 29th requiring emergency medical treatment. Subsequently, her building employees located a massive beehive in the wall of one of the Sandra apartments. As the hive was removed, a large amount of honey dripped all over the lobby stairs. It was not cleaned up, and no warning signs were posted and my client slipped and fell down the stairs, which resulted in a serious injury requiring surgery of his finger, which will never regain normal use.”
The litigator is Alexander (Buck) Winthrop, a Miami Beach “publicist and author”. Get the finger out, Buck!
