LAWYER SUES SUNSCREEN COMPANY OVER SUNBURN

A lawyer who got burned -- by the sun -- is suing the company that made his sunscreen and demanding $5,000 because his vacation was ruined.

S.A. Schapiro says in his lawsuit that the sun protection factor 2 sunscreen "provided no prevention of sun burning." A lawyer for Beiersdorf Inc. of Connecticut, said the label on Nivea Sun indicated it is suitable for people who rarely burn or who have deep-based tans.

David Crosby, associate professor of dermatology at the Medical College of Wisconsin, said a protection factor of 2 is "very weak."
