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”.

From a man upset over his date’s behavior during a movie to a woman who claimed she was shocked that jellybeans contain sugar, online site 24/7 Tempo created a list of some of the craziest lawsuits from the last decade, according to a report from USA Today.

  • A Dutch citizen lost his bid to change his age legally to avoid ageism on Tinder.
  • A judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by a California woman against Jelly Belly, claiming that their use of the word “evaporated cane juice” fraudulently misled her to believe that the jellybeans did not contain sugar.

  • Subway settled a case with a teen who filed a lawsuit claiming the company’s foot-long sub only measured 11 inches.
  • Red Bull agreed to pay $640,000 in an out-of-court settlement after a group of consumers filed a class-action lawsuit claiming the energy drink company misled them because the beverage failed to energize them.
  • A judge dismissed a $5 million lawsuit against McDonald’s filed by two customers over the fast food chain’s charging the same price for a quarter pounder with cheese and a quarter pounder without.
  • And a trial is pending in a case filed by a man against Popeyes Louisiana Chicken alleging that the fast food chain engaged in deceptive advertising and ran out of its much-publicized chicken sandwich while he waited in line.
