FYI: McDonald's Lawsuit Dismissed w/ Prejudice

A little late – this happened last week.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A federal judge on Thursday threw out a revised lawsuit against McDonald’s Corp. that accused the fast food restaurant of using misleading advertising to lure children into eating unhealthy foods that make them fat.

U.S. District Judge Robert Sweet had previously dismissed the plaintiffs’ original case but allowed them to submit a new filing with information backing up their advertising allegations.

In dismissing the current suit, Sweet said that the plaintiffs had not followed his detailed instructions and he barred them from filing another version, quelling litigation fears the suit had sparked in the food industry.
