Negligence Cases in the News:
Consumer Protection Actions
On a “lighter note” Bloomberg has recently reported that lawsuits have been filed against Anheuser-Busch by consumers in several states via the Consumer Protection Actions. Yep, it is alleged that the old “King of Beers” is ripping off consumers because it adds water to the finished product which diminishes the alcohol content. Say it ain’t so!
In Michigan, the State Legislature enacted the so-called Consumer Protection Act years ago. See MCL 445.901. This act provides for damages and injunctive relief to protect consumers from various types of bait-and-switch, misrepresentations and consumer scams.
