Today Seattle residents filed a class action suit in the Great Court in the Sky against Seattle Sun Gods, Ltd. The suit seeks damages for what has been by all accounts a lack luster summer. Allegations in the suit include:
A seeming lack of interest in sunny weather throughout the spring and summer
Persistent rainy weather, particularly on weekends
Repeated dramatic shifts in temperature over a twenty-four hour period
While many lifelong Seattle residents aren’t sure what all the fuss is about, others express anger with the Sun Gods and say they simply want what they have coming to them. Shaym O’Nuss, who moved here from Texas ten years ago, says, “I’m used to summer just being from Memorial Day to Labor Day but this is just ridiculous.”
Specific damages requested in the suit are:
A partial refund on the summer equal to the number of non-sunny days between Memorial Day and Labor Day
Counseling to help residents with Seasonal Affective Disorder this winter
Money to pay for sun lamps
Starbucks coffee cards
Unspecified damages due to pain and suffering
The suit is expected to be heard later this fall.
