Starbucks Cold Drinks

March 2018: The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the district court’s dismissal of the case finding that no reasonable consumer would think a 12-ounce iced drink is 12 ounces of liquid with no ice and there are no allegations that Starbucks promised the drinks would contain a specific amount of liquid.

September 2016: The named plaintiff filed a Notice of Appeal regarding the August dismissal of the case.

August 2016: A federal judge dismissed this case finding that the complaint failed to allege any viable claims.

May/June 2016: A false advertising class-action lawsuit was filed against Starbucks for allegedly misrepresenting that its cold drinks contain nearly double the amount of fluid ounces than they actually do. The complaint was originally filed in state court in May 2016 and transferred to federal court the next month. (Forouzesh et al v. Starbucks Corp., Case No. 16-cv-3830, C. D. CA.)
