Apparently when lib mothers kids are whiny and want Happy Meals, it’s way easier to get a lawyer and sue McDonalds than to just friggin’ say “NO!”
Luckily, there are a few judges left who don’t have a problem using that word;
Children in California will still be able to get toys with their Happy Meals.
A San Francisco judge has dismissed a proposed class-action lawsuit that sought to stop McDonald’s Corp. from using toys to market its meals to children in the Golden State. The suit had been filed in late 2010 by Monet Parham, a California mother of two, and The Center for Science in the Public Interest, a consumer advocacy group based in Washington, D.C.
The suit had claimed that the world’s biggest hamburger chain was violating consumer protection laws and exploiting children’s vulnerability by using toys to lure them to eat nutritionally unbalanced meals that can lead to obesity. The lawsuit did not seek damages.
Yeah, no more toys in cereal I notice, someone got to the Froot Loops first.
