This Woman Is Suing Starbucks For $5 Million — Over Ice
The suit claims Starbucks is misleading customers because the amount of coffee or tea in the cup doesn't match the drink size advertised.By Ryan Biek | May 2, 2016
Starbucks is facing a $5 million lawsuit over the accusation that the coffee giant is putting too much ice in its iced drinks.
The class-action suit was filed by Stacy Pincus, a customer in Chicago, who's arguing the drink sizes Starbucks advertises aren't true to how much coffee is in the cup.
For example, the suit claims a Venti –– which is advertised as 24 fluid ounces –– is really 14 ounces of coffee, with the remainder being just ice.
