First Lawsuit In China Milk Scandal Delayed

From AFP:

China’s first civil lawsuit seeking compensation over last year’s tainted milk scandal has been delayed for further investigation, state-run media reported Wednesday.

A district court in Beijing late last month began hearing a case filed by Ma Xuexin, whose 20-month-old son developed kidney stones after drinking the poisoned milk, the China Daily said.

The case against now-bankrupt dairy producer Sanlu Group and a Beijing supermarket was delayed after the defendants requested further investigation into the link between the child’s illness and the tainted milk, it said.
