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”.

Man sues Popeyes over chicken sandwich craving

A Popeye's Restaurant posts sign that it's sold out of its new chicken sandwich.

I can’t get happy. I have this sandwich on my mind. I can’t think straight. It just consumes you.

A Tennessee man said those words to a Times Free Press reporter in Chattanooga this week after filing a $5,000 lawsuit against Popeyes Chicken because all the restaurants in his area ran out of the trending sandwich and he spent “countless hours” trying to find something else to eat, according to media reports.

The lawsuit filed by chicken sandwich fan Craig Barr, who says he’s suing to stand up to “big corporate,” alleges that Popeyes engaged in “false advertising” and “deceptive business practices by entity to public.”

Mr. Barr also told reporters that he answered a “blacklist” Craigslist ad from a friend of a man claiming to be a Popeyes worker who said he was selling chicken sandwiches out of the back of the restaurant for $24.

The man took his money, but he never received the sandwich, according to media reports.

“Countless time wasted driving to and from Popeyes. No chicken sandwich. Was told to come back this day (and) still no sandwich,” he told a reporter.
