Starbucks Lawsuit


It looks like a latte flavored lawsuit against Starbucks is continuing to brew.

A federal judge in San Francisco has ruled that two customers can move forward with their plans to sue the coffee giant for under filling their drinks. The lawsuit by two people from California say that the pitchers employees use for heating milk have “fill to” lines that are too low. In addition to that the plaintiffs argue that Starbucks requires employees to leave about a quarter of an inch of free space in every drink which means customers aren't getting as much coffee as they are paying for.

The judge ruled that it is possible for people to believe they are getting the 12, 14 or 16 ounces they paid for and that the issue should be decided by a trial of fact. This is not the first time that Starbucks has found itself arguing whether or not size matters. Earlier this year a woman tried to sue saying there was too much ice and not enough coffee in her iced coffee. A caffeine fix is a dangerous thing to mess with.
