Chipotle has been racking up the legal fees this year.

Chipotle faces another headache after a judge ruled in favor of a former Chipotle employee who was fired by her manager for being pregnant. district court for Washington, D.C., according to the Washington Business Journal.

The case was initially filed in 2014, but goes back to 2011 when Hernandez first informed her manager at a D.C. He began restricting her water and bathroom breaks.

“Upon learning of her pregnancy, David told Ms. Garcia that she had to announce to every employee in the store when she was going to the bathroom and that David would have to approve her bathroom breaks so that he could cover her work position for her,” the lawsuit stated. “David did not impose these requirements on non-pregnant employees.”

The manager, referred to only as “David” in the court case, then refused to allow her to leave work early for a pre-natal appointment. When she went to the appointment anyway, she was fired in front of other employees.

The Daily Meal has contacted Chipotle for a statement.

Woman Fall 23 Stories Lands on Taxi Argentina - A 33-year-old woman fell from the 23rd floor of a hotel in Buenos Aires, landed on a taxi cab parked on the street below and survived.

The woman, whose name was not released, underwent surgery today, Telam, the national news agency of Argentina, said. Doctors believe she has fractured ribs, two broken hips and is bleeding internally.

A hospital spokesman said the woman hit the taxi in a seated position, which likely saved her life. Had she come down head first it would probably have been a different story, noted Alberto Crescenti, director of Argentina's emergency medical services.

The taxi driver, Miguel Cajal, narrowly escaped death, he told a Buenos Aires television station, C5N.

Mr Cajal said he saw a police officer looking up and, following his glance, also looked up. He saw the woman falling and got out of his cab just moments before the impact completely destroyed both the roof and the windshield.
