BRONX - A Bronx restaurant is facing a lawsuit from customers who may have been exposed to hepatitis A at the establishment.

The class-action lawsuit was filed today against the New Hawaii Sea Restaurant on Williamsbridge Road. The suit claims the restaurant negligently exposed customers to the virus a week ago.

The city Department of Health found positive evidence of the virus being spread at the restaurant, and four patrons tested positive for it.

The restaurant remains closed.
