US judge upholds Pa. groping suit against Disney

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Pennsylvania woman who claims Donald Duck groped her at Disney's Epcot theme park in Florida will have her
day in court.

A federal judge in Philadelphia says Disney must defend April
Magolon's post-traumatic stress lawsuit.

The 27-year-old Upper Darby woman claims she was holding her
child at the Walt Disney World park when a staff member dressed as
Donald Duck grabbed her breast and then joked about it.

Magolon says the May 2008 encounter left her with nightmares,
digestive problems and other permanent injuries.

She also charges that Disney parks have a history of fondling
complaints.

The defense says Magolon sued the wrong Disney corporate entity,
and asked the judge to dismiss the suit or move it to Florida.

But the judge refused, saying Magolon can proceed in
Pennsylvania.
