MAC Cosmetics at Macy's Gave Ocular Herpes With Tester Makeup Customer Says In SDNY

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 16 – Temmeka Hill went to Macy's and the MAC Cosmetics counter; she had eyeliner applied to her eyelids.

 But it was tester makeup that had been used on others and she got ocular herpes. She sued.

  On December 16 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul A. Engelmayer held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

Judge Engelmayer asked, sensibly, it was possible to get herpes from a make-up counter. He was told, "Anything is possible."

It did not make him happy. Nor did multiple passings-of-the-buck to a partner who was not present.    

 In the docket this month: plaintiff made a settlement demand of $3 million.

So depositions are to be completed by June 16.

The case is Hill v. M.A.C. Cosmetics Inc. et al., 20-cv-9609 (Engelmayer)
