Who doesn’t like to nail corporations for malfeasance? But it’s positively embarrassing that a federal judge has allowed two Starbucks customers to pursue a lawsuit against the coffee chain for under-filling lattes. Who has the kind of money it takes for such a frivolous lawsuit? Nobody likes to be stiffed but why didn’t they just find another coffee shop?
Any woman who has ever pursued litigation for sexual harassment by a corporation faces an obstacle course of legal requirements & maneuvers just to file the lawsuit & will be lucky if it even gets that far.
Pardon me if it fries my ass that US jurisprudence gives stinking lattes priority over women’s right not to be abused & to be treated with respect.
