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”.

Argument over half-filled candy boxes half-baked: Judge

Junior Mints

A federal court judge tossed another lawsuit challenging the volume of treats in movie theater candy boxes, dismissing the lawyer’s half-baked argument that the half-full boxes were deceptive.

The New Jersey federal court dismissed an argument filed by two law firms that customers were misled by the size of boxes of Junior Mints and Sugar Babies, according to an article from Legal Newsline.

The motion to dismiss noted that the sugary treats were sold by weight, not volume, and that the boxes clearly stated that fact.

This latest attempt to argue candy deception is the fifth such lawsuit, Legal Newsline said. Three have been tossed out, but two still hope to convince a judge that the boxes are sadly half-empty.
