SEATTLE, WA – A class action lawsuit was filed today against Wyndham International on behalf of all individuals who became ill after being infected with Salmonella during a three-week long outbreak at the Wyndham Anatole in Dallas, Texas.

Marler Clark, a Seattle, Washington-based law firm nationally known for its successful litigation of cases involving foodborne illnesses, filed the complaint.

Four of the confirmed cases named as plaintiffs are Patrick Cary Duke, of Dallas, Texas; Redmond, Washington resident Nicholle Jaquith, Jeff Fleeger of Indiana; and Jolyn Witing, who resides in Denver county, Colorado. Duke, Jaquith, Fleeger, and witing all attended conventions held at the Wyndham Anatole during March and April. Soon after attending their respective events, each became ill with severe abdominal pain, fatigue, diarrhea, fever, intense nausea, vomiting, and headaches. Their symptoms lasted for several days with Jaquith, Fleeger, and Witing all requiring emergency medical attention.
