A non-starter in federal court, case vs Roti over credit card digits on receipts still headed to Cook court
A federal judge has again sent back to Cook County Circuit Court a class action dispute about how many credit card digits appear on restaurant receipts, saying, while federal courts have been clear the case is a non-starter, Illinois state courts have yet to answer.
A woman who claimed she overpaid for her sausage burrito meal at a McDonald’s restaurant in The Loop has become the second plaintiff asking Cook County courts to make McDonald’s and a local McDonald’s franchisee pay for charging a few cents more the meal as a bundled “Extra Value Meal,” rather than a la carte.
Roti Restaurants, a Chicago-based chain specializing in fast, fresh Mediterranean-style food, has been served with a class action lawsuit, alleging the chain prints too many digits from its customers’ credit and debit cards on receipts.
A Des Plaines man has brought a consumer fraud class action against a suburban Chicago McDonald’s franchisee, alleging the restaurant group should be made to payfor allegedly false advertising on its menu, as the group’s pricing of its two cheeseburger “Extra Value Meal” causes customers to pay 41 cents more than they would if they just ordered their two burgers, fries and drink separately.
