The New York Post: Starbucks lawsuit alleging it put too much ice in drinks gets dismissed

If Starbucks puts too much ice in your drink, that’s too damn bad.

A federal judge has tossed a lawsuit accusing the Seattle-based coffee giant of deceiving customers because its cold beverages contain less liquid than advertised.

The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles federal court in June, alleged that Starbucks’ SBUX, +1.22% iced drinks “contain significantly less product than advertised.”

Judge Percy Anderson dismissed the suit as ridiculous, saying even a kid knows better.

“If children have figured out that including ice in a cold beverage decreases the amount of liquid they will receive, the court has no difficulty concluding that a reasonable consumer would not be deceived into thinking that when they order an iced tea, that the drink they receive will include both ice and tea and that for a given size cup, some portion of the drink will be ice rather than whatever liquid beverage the consumer ordered,” he wrote in his Aug.
