Starbucks Sued In Class Action For Under-filled Lattes

Starbucks is being sued in a class-action lawsuit for making under-filled latte drinks.

“A judge has rejected Starbucks’ efforts to put the kibosh on a lawsuit filed by two customers who claim that the coffee chain routinely underfills lattes.
