Judge rejects KFC's assertions about Twister case

FAST food giant KFC has so far failed in its attempt to reverse a court order to pay out $8 million to the family of a young girl who suffered brain damage after eating one of the restaurant's chicken wraps.

A Sydney judge rejected the contents of documents tendered by the chain during the first directions hearing in the NSW Supreme Court on Friday.

In April, Justice Stephen Rothman accepted that seven-year-old Monika Samaan, who is now confined to a wheelchair, received permanent brain damage resulting from an infection she contracted from a Twister wrap at the Villawood KFC in 2005.

KFC has maintained Ms Saaman's family did not buy a Twister on the day in question.
