Obese Customer Sues White Castle over Small Seats

Tim Boyle/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- A nearly 300-pound New York man has filed a lawsuit against White Castle, claiming the fast food restaurant went back on a two-year-old promise to enlarge its seats to help customers of his size.

Martin Kessman tells The New York Post the restaurant's executives promised renovations that never came to be.

"They sent me specs...about how the booths were going to enlarged," Kessman tells the paper, noting he's able to fit in the seats of other fast food joints, and on airplanes.  "They're stationary booths.  I'm not humongous, [but] I'm a big guy.  I could not wedge myself in."

It was an uncomfortable visit to a White Castle in Nanuet, New Jersey in 2009 that prompted Kessman to send an angry letter to the company, which netted him some coupons for free hamburgers -- which he redeemed.

"But the cheese was extra," he noted.

Kessman is seeking the renovations and unspecified damages.
