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”.

Refreshing news for those suing ginger ale maker

Canada Dry

It’s settled: Canada Dry ginger ale contains none of the health benefits of ginger.


The maker of Canada Dry ginger ale recently settled a class-action, false-advertising lawsuit filed by a man in British Columbia who claimed to have spent years buying the carbonated beverage for his family thinking it had medicinal benefits based on its label promoting it as “Made from Real Ginger” and “Natural,” according to Canada’s CTV News.


According to the report, Canada Dry Mott Inc. agreed to pay Victor Cardoso $200,000 plus $18,607 in disbursements, even though the company “expressly denies liability and is not required to change its product labeling or advertising for products marketed in Canada,” according to court documents.


Mr. Cardoso argued in his lawsuit that product labeling aimed to “capitalize” on a common perception that ginger root has health benefits. This, despite Canada Dry making no direct health benefit claims about the ginger ale, the company argued.


In addition to the payout, the company also agreed it would no longer make claims that its ginger ale is “Made from Real Ginger,” as stated in a separate class-action lawsuit filed in Buffalo, New York, that accuses the company of lying to consumers, according to CTV News.
