BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Yo quiero advertised Taco Bell deal: Lawsuit

Yo quiero advertised Taco Bell deal: Lawsuit

A New Jersey couple who claims they were charged $2.18 too much after ordering two Taco Bell meals advertised as $5 apiece have filed a lawsuit, the Bridgewater Courier News reported Thursday.

Nelson Estrella-Rojas and Joann Estrella claimed they went to a Taco Bell in May 2018 to order food after they saw a TV commercial advertising $5 meals that included a chalupa supreme, a five-layer burrito, a crunchy taco, a cinnamon twist and a drink, according to the news report.

When the bill came to $12.99, they inquired about the overcharge, to which they were told to read the fine print, which popped up on the television screen one-sixteenth the size of the “$5” font and only for a few seconds, according to the lawsuit alleging violations of New Jersey’s Consumer Fraud Statute.

“You can’t tell someone you are going to charge them $5 in big bold print and then take it away with a fine print disclaimer,” attorney Douglas Schwartz told the New York Daily News.

Taco Bell officials issued the following statement: “Taco Bell and its franchisees are proud to provide millions of guests with delicious, affordable food every day. Our advertisements are truthful and accurate, and we will defend this case vigorously.”
