Judge: McDonald's must pay obese employee $17.5K
A Brazilian court ruled this week that McDonald's must pay a former franchise manager $17,500 because he gained 65 pounds (30 kilograms) while working there for a dozen years.

I'm no fan of McDonalds, but I sure do hope this gets overturned on appeal. There is something to be said for personal responsibility for ones diet and other lifestyle choices. I also hope this sort of silliness doesn't make it into the US.
