Readers may be interested in the new U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform report, “The Food Court: Developments in Litigation Targeting Food and Beverage Marketing.”  The paper was authored by my colleagues Cary Silverman, Jim Muehlberger, and Adriana Paris.

It can be found online and deals with the increasing number of consumer class actions targeting food and beverage marketing; the rising trend in lawsuits targeting product flavoring or ingredients; the upsurge in “greenwashing” litigation alleging that company claims about eco-friendly practices are overstated; and the shift from California to New York of the dubious distinction of the nation’s most popular “food court” jurisdiction.

Worth a read.
