McDonalds Fat Suit Thrown Out


— January 22, 2003

In a 64-page decision, Federal District Judge Robert W. Sweet for the District of New York tossed the suit, saying McDonalds is not to blame when parents allow their children to eat too much fast food, when they know (or should have known) it isn’t healthy. But the Judge gave plaintiffs an opportunity to amend and re-file, according to this from law.com. You can also read the opinion here (thanks to How Appealing for the link).
