Florida Court Cites Iqbal Ruling to Dismiss Coca-Cola Case

The Wall Street Journal reported, “Coca-Cola Co. won a key legal victory this week in Florida thanks to a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision that gives businesses a new edge in plaintiff’s lawsuits. The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Southern Florida dismissed a case against the soft drink giant, known as Sinaltrainal v. Coca-Cola Co. The judges cited the high court’s May decision in Ashcroft v. Iqbal, which allows a court to dismiss a case if plaintiffs haven’t provided strong enough evidence in their pleading.” On Tuesday “a panel of three Eleventh Circuit judges found that Coca Cola, its Colombian subsidiaries and its bottlers couldn’t be held responsible for the murder of one and the torture of several trade union leaders at bottling facilities in Colombia between the mid 1990’s and 2001.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
