California Nail Salons Being Sued

At least nine nail salons have been named in a lawsuit over pedicure-related infections that have afflicted salon clients in California’s Santa Clara County, according to San Francisco’s CBS 5 News.

The complaints, filed by more than 75 people in Santa Clara County Superior Court, accuse salon owners of not properly disinfecting whirlpool footspas and other implements in the salons according to the California State Board of Barbering and Cosmetology’s rules and regulations.

The plaintiffs are seeking damages for permanent scarring of their legs and bodies and a court order that would require the salons to follow the state board’s regulations, as well as provide adequate product training for salon employees, attorney Rob Bohn told CBS 5 News. More salons are currently being investigated, Bohn said.
