Subway Lawsuit Claims That Size Really Does Matter

Subway lawsuit is about much more than 1 inch.

by Long Island Attorney Paul A. Lauto, Esq.

The subway restaurant chain is well known for their "Foot Long" sandwiches and in particular the well advertised "$5 Foot Long".  But what if the "Foot Long" being sold was actually only 11 inches long?

That very issue is now the subject matter of a class action lawsuit against Subway, as it is claimed that Subway locations in various states, including New York, are short changing their customers by 1 inch.  The claim is in part based on false advertising and misrepresentation and seeks compensatory damages and a change in practices.

Although putting a figure on the compensatory damages may prove difficult, it is estimated that each person could be out of pocket between $50.00 and $100.00 per year depending on frequency of patronage.  Claimants' attorney maintains that, "This is no different than if you bought a dozen eggs and they gave you eleven ...".   A spokesperson for Subway stated, "We always strive for our customers to have the most positive experience possible".
