EDISON, N.J.-- A group of Hindus can sue a New Jersey restaurant that served them meat even though they are vegetarians.
An appeals court reinstated their lawsuit, saying they can seek money from Moghul Express to travel to India to perform a purification ritual in the Ganges River.
A lower court had dismissed the suit.
The restaurant admitted it accidentally served the group a meat dish during an India Day celebration in 2009.
The appeals court says the group can pursue a breach of express warranty suit.
Pradip Kothari of the Indo-American Cultural Society in Edison told The Star-Ledger of Newark the suit should be dismissed because the group can go to a local temple to seek forgiveness for unknowingly doing something.
