Woman sues Disney, claims she was molested by Donald Duck

A Pennsylvania woman, having visited Disney World Florida's Epcot Centre theme park, is suing the Walt Disney Company because - she claims - an employee of the company dressed as Donald Duck 'grabbed her breast and molested her' after she sought an autograph from the much loved character.

According to the report filed under the lawsuit, the Duck made gestures with his 'snowy white hands' indicating he had done something wrong. The 27 year old was visiting Epcot in May 2008 with her fiancee and children.

She claims that as a result of the incident, she has suffered “severe physical injury, emotional anguish and distress including, but not limited to post-traumatic stress disorder.”

She is suing the company, who is looking to have the case moved into federal court, for negligence, battery, and infliction of emotional distress, and is seeking in excess of $50,000 in damages.
