Alabama’s Tort King Heads to the Border
Jere Beasley, Alabama’s infamous class-action impresario and would-be Dickie Scruggs, has headed for the border. Alleging that his law firm’s “independent” testing indicates that Taco Bell’s beef tacos include only 35% beef, Beasley’s suing the fast-food chain in – you guessed it – California, the nation’s best place to have a meritless consumer class-action certified and taken seriously by a kooky judge.
To Taco Bell’s credit, it says it’ll fight Beasley’s suit, both in the courtroom and in the court of public opinion. The Associated Press reports that Taco Bell is already fighting back with this full page newspaper ad, social media, viral video and more.
