LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) – A Los Angeles man is suing McDonald's alleging the fast food chain misled him about the price of a breakfast item on its dollar menu.
Sean Dabir, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on Aug. 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against McDonald's Corp. and Does 1-10 alleging violation of the California False Advertising Act and violation of the Unfair Competition Law and violation of the Consumer Legal Remedies Act.
The plaintiff alleges he purchased items from the defendant's menu that were advertised as being part of the dollar menu and should only cost $1. The suit states the plaintiff visited the defendant's restaurant on Sept. 3, 2018, and saw that the Sausage McMuffin was part of the value menu and would cost $1. Because of this, the plaintiff alleges he purchased two of the sandwiches.
The plaintiff alleges the defendant, however, charged the plaintiff $1.89 per McMuffin rather than $1 it was represented as costing. He alleges had he known that the item was more than $1, he would not have purchased it and claims that the defendant misled him about the price in order to sell more items.
The plaintiff is seeking trial by jury, attorneys' fees, court costs, interest and just relief. The plaintiff is represented by Todd M. Friedman, Adrian R. Bacon, Meghan E. George, Thomas E. Wheeler and Mordechai Wolowitsch of the Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman PC in Woodland Hills, California.
