U.S. Postal Service
In February, 2001 the San Mateo County Health Department sent a cylinder of meningitis samples to the Microbial Diseases Laboratory in Berkeley. For reasons unknown, a vial ended up in an Aptos family post box. Meningitis, a potentially deadly illness, is the inflammation of the lining around the brain and spinal cord. Although Serena Lewis and her family did not contract the disease, they had to endure antibiotics that made them ill and filed a lawsuit against the Postal Service for damages. Both parties declined to discuss the terms of the settlement but the Lewis family is pleased with the undisclosed sum. (Jun-17-05) [SAN FRANCISCO GATE]
