Crazy, I thought they would just have to add stupid warning signs but this is gonna be costly

"In addition to the warning signs likely to result from the lawsuit, the Council for Education and Research on Toxics, which brought the lawsuit, has asked for fines as much as $2,500 for every person exposed to the chemical since 2002, potentially opening the door to massive settlements. Starbucks is the lead defendant in the case; others like 7-Eleven have already settled. Starbucks did not immediately respond to a request for comment"

Hmmm. I've had multiple cups of coffee in California since 2002...maybe it's time to cash in!

Good luck. LADWP legit cost me $1500 and maybe 50 hours of my life and I was told by the class action attorneys that eight bills and two dozen emails was 'insufficient cause.'
