Floridians Sue McDonald’s Over Cost of Quarter Pounders
If you order a Quarter Pounder with Cheese at McDonald's, you'll pay about $4. If you order the Quarter Pounder without cheese, it'll cost you the same $4.
Two people in Fort Lauderdale, Florida think that's unfair and maybe even illegal. Cynthia Kissner and Leonard Werner filed a class-action lawsuit against McDonald's earlier this month. They're claiming that McDonald's is cheating all of us by not knocking anything off the price if we order a Quarter Pounder without cheese.
Their argument boils down to something pretty simple: A hamburger costs less at McDonald's than a cheeseburger, so, clearly, the cheese has some monetary value. So why wouldn't you get a discount if you have them hold the cheese?
They're looking for at least $5 million in damages.
