McDonald's Obesity Law Suite Dismissed


In a stunning departure from the kinds of lawsuits that make you unable to eat, a judge has dismissed the case against McDonald's that claimed the food giant was responsible for obese patron' obesity.

The suit, brought in New York, claimed that McDonald's had done too much to make its food tempting and not enough to warn people that eating an Egg McMuffin for breakfast and a SuperSize BigMac meal for dinner without any exercise would make you fat.

CNN Money is reporting in this article that the lawsuit was dismissed because the judge couldn't find that McDonald's had done anything wrong, but has suggested that an amended complaint which focussed the cited deception in the original complaint might be fit to proceed.
