9th Circuit Affirms Dismissal of Starbucks Iced Drink Underfilling Suit

In a three-page opinion, a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit affirmed dismissal of claims that Starbucks Corporation under-filled its iced beverages.  The panel concluded that the claims "fail as a matter of law because no reasonable consumer would think (for example) that a 12-ounce "iced" drink, such as iced coffee or iced tea, contains 12 ounces of coffee or tea and no ice."  [3/14/18]
