Part of Parents' Obesity Suit Against McDonalds Revived
New York Law Journal
A federal appeals court has given parents who blamed McDonald's for their children's obesity a ray of hope for their lawsuit.
The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Tuesday reinstated claims made by the parents that McDonald's violated a section of New York state's Consumer Protection Act by engaging in deceptive advertising over the health benefits of its fast food.
