    Rye class action lawsuit.

    http://www.consumer-classactions.com...batch-whiskey/

    I think we all knew where the LDI stuff came from for years now. Folks like High West honestly put it on the back label. This is crazy and advertised all over my facebook wall.
    Bourbon only requires a glass.

    Its been comical for a while, its just ridiculous now.

    I wish Beam/JD and some of the other mega brands would proudly proclaim big batch, and consistency in every bottle, etc.

    Re: Rye class action lawsuit.

    McDonald's takes pride in billions sold. It was a matter of time before a class action lawsuit. OK, so say I did purchase one of these products. I drank it, recycled the bottle and don't have a receipt. Can I still participate in the lawsuit? I say this in jest. I have no interest. How would I know if I fell into the "and more!" category?

    It's just the legal equivalent of a gill net, set it and see what you catch.

    Re: Rye class action lawsuit.

    The interesting thing is 5.36(d) violators are breaking a federal law involving required disclosure, which could make a prima facie case for deceptive practice. Defense that labels were approved by TTB won't stand if they knowingly submitted non-compliant labels for approval. Hard part might be proving consumer harm.

    But it's not completely insane.

    Certainly not near it for the attorney's who vacuum up several (hundred?) thousand 'damaged'-class folks willing to participate on the off-chance of a few bux in their furure. Seems like an exercise in futility for all but the lawyers.... But, then again, it's the lawyers who always win in these suits. Even if no action results they can garner some pub for standing up against the BAD guys of big business (and/or the fibbing craft business little guys) ripping off consumers. In the end who was really damaged by any of this?????

    Re: Rye class action lawsuit.

    Funny that this flops a few weeks after the big article that has been circulating. While I certainly don't like what these distilleries are doing, I certainly am not going to lend my name to a bunch of lawyers who will walk with all the money and I'll get a coupon or whatever. Besides, since I was in the know when I bought the brands I bought, I certainly don't feel taken advantage of, nor do I have any financial loss.
