Read on to see how you can qualify for this class-action lawsuit against Just Born, INC.

Clarkson Law Firm reached a new milestone this year in its case against Just Born Inc. when U.S. District Judge Terry J. Hatter granted class certification to consumers of theater boxes of Mike and Ike and Hot Tamales who alleged the candy boxes deceive consumers into believing they’re buying more candy than they actually receive.

Lead plaintiff Stephanie Escobar filed suit in February 2017 after she spent $4 on a box of Mike and Ike at a Los Angeles movie theater and discovered that the candy filled only half of the box. She argued that had she known that almost half of the box was filled with air, she wouldn’t have bought it. She sued for violations of California’s consumer protection statutes, including the False Advertising Law, Unfair Competition Law and the Consumers Legal Remedies Act.

“Our lawsuit is seeking to change the way the company packages and/or labels its candy products and a refund of the extra money consumers paid for candy they didn’t receive. Going forward, the solution is easy,” says Ryan Clarkson

If, within the last five years, you bought a theater box of Mike and Ike or Hot Tamales in the United States and this decision to purchase was based upon the size of the box and the candy you expected to receive, then please click here to see how you can join this lawsuit.
