     MARTINEZ, Calif. (CN) - A woman did not expect a metal device to be on the toilet bowl, she claims in Contra Costa County Superior Court.

     Brenda Mouton sued Kaiser Permanente Antioch Medical Center for premises liability, personal injury and general negligence.
     While visiting her sister at Kaiser’s Antioch facility, Mouton went to the restroom, according to the complaint.
     “As she sat down on the toilet, her body came into contact with a fixed metal device that was positioned across the center of the toilet bowl. This fixed metal device apparently is used for cleaning and should have been removed after any cleaning. Plaintiff had no reason to expect such device positioned across the toilet bowl in such a dangerous position to anyone using the toilet,” (Pg. 4) Mouton’s lawsuit states.
     Brenda Mouton seeks general and compensatory damages and medical expenses. She is represented by David R. Shane of Shane Law in Greenbrae.
