Federal Judge Puts Another Ridiculous Starbucks Lawsuit On Ice

Last month, we launched this video about two abusive lawsuits against Starbucks.

In one of those cases, plaintiffs claim their Starbucks lattes contained a quarter inch of steamed milk instead of coffee. In another case, a Chicago-area woman is suing the company for putting too much ice in — you guessed it — the iced coffee.

Believe it or not — there was a third ridiculous lawsuit that was recently filed against Starbucks.

Similar to the Chicago lawsuit featured in our video, this third lawsuit, filed by Los Angeles resident Alexander Forouzesh, claimed that Starbucks was deceiving customers about just how much ice and how much liquid were in the coffee chain’s iced drinks.

The suit, however, received a chilly reception from U.S. District Court Judge Percy Anderson, who dismissed the case after he “ridiculed the plaintiffs and their lawyers” for bringing the suit before the court in the first place.

In dismissing the class action claim, Judge Anderson pointed out the obvious, that “[i]f children have figured out that including ice in a cold beverage decreases the amount of liquid they will receive, the Court has no difficulty concluding that a reasonable consumer would not be deceived into thinking that when they order an iced tea, that the drink they receive will include both ice and tea and that for a given size cup, some portion of the drink will be ice rather than whatever liquid beverage the consumer ordered.”

Although the case was dismissed, Starbucks still had to expend financial resources to fight the case in court — as they will have to do with the similar “too much ice” lawsuit that is still pending in Illinois.

We’ll have to wait to see if the court puts that ridiculous lawsuit on ice, too.
