NEW YORK (Legal Newsline) - A New York woman is suing Starbucks, alleging, the serving size of its espresso beverages is misrepresented.
Brittany Crittenden of Manhattan, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a class action lawsuit May 10 in
U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York
against Starbucks Corporation, alleging violations of the New York General Business Law, breach of express warranty, fraudulent concealment and/or inducement, negligent misrepresentation and unjust enrichment.
The suit alleges Starbucks espresso beverages contain fewer fluid ounces per serving size than otherwise advertised. As a result, the lawsuit states, consumers have overpaid for Starbucks espresso beverages based on a false, inflated serving size.
Crittenden and others in the class seek a jury trial, damages, injunction, interests, attorney fees and costs. They are represented by attorneys Brittany Weiner and Murray Friedman of Imbesi Law in New York.
