Nutty lawsuit gets cracked

A California woman tried unsuccessfully to sue Nutella this year for false advertising.   She was shocked to find that the delicious hazelnut- chocolate spread wasn’t the healthiest breakfast food for her 4-year old.  The suit alleges that the commercials were misleading claiming that Nutella is part of a wholesome, balanced breakfast.

At the end of June, the ASA rejected this lawsuit, on the grounds that the commercial does not lead people to believe the product should be consumed  in excessive amounts.

Although the case was dismissed, this ridiculous lawsuit is indicative of a larger problem.

It’s time to bring back personal responsibility to our state and legal system!

    The need for ‘Loser Pays’ was seen in Texas the day before it went into effect when lawyers made a mad dash to file nearly 60, mostly personal injury, lawsuits in one courthouse. The last minute try at a “jackpot justice” case proves the benefit of this reform prior to it even going into effect.

    LRANY is working to bring reforms like this to NY to stop the frivolous lawsuits in their tracks.
