was filed against Arizona Beverages USA for allegedly misleadingly marketing Arnold Palmer iced tea and lemonade beverages as “Lite” to make consumers think the drinks have fewer calories than other similar beverages when, according to plaintiffs, the Arnold Palmer drinks do not have at least one-third fewer calories than similar beverages, as required by federal regulations when making “Lite” claims.

, Case No. 20-cv-9108, S.D.N.Y.)
