In a monologue this week, Jay Leno noted that Subway Restaurants had apologized to customers who may have been served foot-long subs that didn’t measure 12 inches. “Is that how fat we’ve gotten in this country now — where we’re threatening legal action if our subs are an inch too short?”
In New Jersey and Chicago, the sandwich chain is the subject of lawsuits over not-so-foot-longs. Plaintiffs want $5 million in damages and hope to have their claim declared a class action. No kidding.
Meantime in California, two people who read Lance Armstrong’s autobiography have filed suit claiming Armstrong’s denial of using performance-enhancing drugs was fraudulent and false advertising. They’re also seeking class certification.
Lawsuit reform, anyone?
