In September WLF’s Cory Andrews applauded the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit’s rejection of a settlement of a consumer-fraud class-action suit against Subway. The suit alleged that not all Subway foot-long sandwiches measured a full 12″. The WLF Legal Pulse post did note, however, that on the basis of “new” information from an employee of one of Subway’s vendors, the plaintiffs refiled their suit in a Wisconsin federal court after the appeals court’s dismissal.
We learned today, thanks to the Institute for Legal Reform (ILR) (which kindly referenced our September post) and the Legal Newsline story ILR referenced, that the plaintiffs voluntarily dismissed their suit late last month. Not surprisingly, the plaintiffs’ quiet surrender garnered substantially less attention than the filing of their original lawsuit in 2013.
