HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – An appeals court won’t let a Pennsylvania man make legal chicken salad from chicken manure he shoveled decades ago at a school for needy children.
Pennlive.com reports a Superior Court panel on Tuesday agreed with the Dauphin County judge who dismissed Edward Krishack’s lawsuit against the Milton Hershey School, which he attended from 1948 to 1953.
The judge and the appeals court agree Krishack failed to connect his current lung problems illnesses to the farm work he and other students were required to perform.
The judge noted Krishack developed emphysema from smoking a pack-and-a-half of cigarettes daily for 40 years. Krishack had argued a calcified deposit on one of his lungs resulted from inhaling fungus on hay and chicken manure.
