I got a notice from TunaLawsuit.com this morning which got me thinking:
1) First Whole Foods, then Volkswagen, and now this.. Is it no longer safe to assume a brand stands for the values we assume?
2) Ten of thousands of lawsuits are filed every day and each needs a public record for perpetuity. What better way then a .Lawsuit domain. They advertise heavily too and it makes a clear, call-to-action. Dot Recall would work great in tandem. Go get em' tigers!
Welcome to the Hendricks v. StarKist Co. website
If you purchased one or more of the StarKist Products from February 19, 2009 through October 31, 2014, this website informs you of a proposed Class-Action Settlement that you may benefit from.
NATURE OF THE SETTLEMENT
The Lawsuit claims that StarKist Co. ("StarKist") under-filled certain 5 oz. canned tuna products in violation of state and federal law. StarKist denies that it underfilled its products and denies that it did anything wrong. The Court did not rule in favor of Plaintiff or StarKist. Instead, the parties agreed to a Proposed Settlement to avoid the expense and risks of continuing the lawsuit.
THE SETTLEMENT CLASS
You are a Class Member if you are a resident of the United States of America who purchased from February 19, 2009 through October 31, 2014:
one or more 5 oz. can of Chunk Light Tuna in Water,
