It isn’t uncommon for a coffee shop employee to occasionally mess up a latte order, but Starbucks is  being sued after a barista's alleged mistake left a man in the hospital.

Max Scher, a 34-year-old based in Portland, Oregon, is suing the coffee chain for $10,000 after he claims he was served a coffee drink made with almond milk instead of soy milk. Scher says he suffers from a life-threatening nut allergy so the mistake had major consequences.

The alleged incident happened in May, but Scher's lawsuit was filed Monday in the Multnomah County Circuit Court of Oregon. Portland-based attorney Michael Fuller is representing the plaintiff.

Scher told The Oregonian that he’s a regular Starbucks customer. Every time he places an order, he says he always cautions the employees to “be careful” because of his severe allergy.
