Default [update] Sandwich chain files to have puzzling tuna lawsuit dismissed

Subway: Stick a Fork in This Lawsuit, It's Done

https://www.newser.com/story/309022/...ss_world_login

Subway has had enough and would prefer to focus on sandwiches. The sandwich chain has asked a federal judge to throw out a lawsuit against it, calling it frivolous. Two people in California filed a class-action lawsuit—Amin at el v Subway Restaurants Inc et al—earlier this year claiming there’s no tuna in Subway’s tuna salad sandwiches. Then, the lawsuit walked back the claim, asking only for proof that the tuna was “100% sustainably caught skipjack and yellowfin tuna.” That’s an accusation that is hard to reconcile with claiming Subway labeling tuna as tuna is "malicious."

Meanwhile, Subway says the bad press stemming from the accusation, including a write-up in the New York Times, has had a lousy effect on sales. While the lab used by that newspaper couldn’t find tuna DNA in that sandwich, the report pointed out that cooked and processed fish would not be especially likely to have DNA that could be analyzed by a lab.

Subway’s filing called the claims "unsupportable." The sandwich chain has some prior experience with the harm of frivolous cases, having been stuck with a huge legal bill for suing the CBC for (falsely) claiming there's soy in Subway’s chicken.

Subway should file a countersuit and bankrupt the idiots who filed the lawsuit over the tuna.

Perfect example of why Americans need to move to "Loses pays" in civil suits.

While I tend to agree, that's a huge hurdle when it's an individual vs. a corporation.

Here's the part that I don't understand... The NYT article, and the suit, claim that DNA testing did not show that the DNA was consistent with tuna. Well then, what did it prove to be consistent with? Cow? Rat? wtf?

Look how many of the slip and fall law suits get settled simply because it costs less to settle.


The lawyers are the ones who end up paying in most loser pay cases.

Doesn't matter if they have real tuna or not their food sucks always support local shops.
Their spokesthing from the soccer team further separates my desire to walk into one of their stores ever again.

I agree that some people mess it up for many others. Attorneys may be close to the top of the list. I just don't want to totally adjust the system to screw the little guy.

I'm just a little creeped out by that weird young man that they hired to pitch their sandwiches after Jared went to the Big House.

The " little guy" being screwed are the citizens. These lawsuits cost all of us thousands a year in higher costs.

Subway isn't exactly at the top of the sub making world, but for a decent price they provide an OK sub, albeit light on meat, with plenty of healthy vegetables. For years I enjoyed one of their subs every few weeks without regret.
