Second (Circuit) helpings in McDonald’s fat suit

January 27, 2005 at 6:28 pm Leave a comment

The Washington Times — and just about everyone else — reports that the Second Circuit has revived part of a lawsuit by two teenagers who couldn’t say no when asked “Do you want fries with that?” A federal district court judge had thrown the lawsuit out, but the Second Circuit says that one of the New York state claims can proceed. Plaintiffs Ashley Pelman and Jazlen Bradley claim that McDonald’s hid the health risks of its grease coated heart attach specials. However, Bloomberg reports that McDonald’s says that they will prevail in this frivolous” lawsuit. I’d say that it is more like fry-volous, but that’s just me.

The Second Circuit’s decision can be read here: Pelman v. McDonald’s Corp., 03-9010 (2nd Cir. Jan. 25, 2005).
