Antsy Up:

Ant-bite case yields $5.35M award: “A 79-year-old woman who was found swarmed by fire ants at the nursing home where she lived was awarded $5.35 million by an Alabama jury.

Linda Law, an employee of Greystone Retirement Community in Huntsville, Ala., made the shocking discovery when she entered Lucille Devers’ darkened room to deliver clean laundry. Ants covered Devers’ body, her bed and the walls of her room. Devers, who was sitting, stood up and Law saw ants flowing from her mouth, nose, ears and hair.” National Law Journal [via Romenesko’s Obscure Store]
