They're At It Again...No Whey Out

cartoon of people fighting in the court roomWe were hoping the judge would shred this one.

Back in July, we told you about a Florida duo who sued McDonald’s for not giving them a price break on a Quarter Pounder with Cheese minus the cheese.

Clearly cheesed off, a Fort Lauderdale federal judge dismissed the suit a couple of weeks ago, saying the pair couldn’t prove that they were harmed by having to pay more for a plain Quarter Pounder as alleged. In fact, he called their effort to present a Quarter Pounder and a Quarter Pounder with Cheese as one “tied” product “absurd.” 

We find a lot of lawsuits absurd these days. But maybe it’s just the culture.
