Woman sues KFC for $20 million because she didn't get enough chicken. 

She isn't going to get $20 million.  She didn't suffer damages anywhere near worth that.  KFC probably did her a favor.  Eat too much KFC and you can get sick (and fat).

But if she does get $20 million, I'm going to head to her lawyer and tell him about the time Western Bagel shorted me one bagel.  That then should be worth $40 million.

Ya know, you can go to chick fil a and order breakfast items with bacon on them. Clearly the spelling challenged cows are willing to sell out both chickens and also pigs.they should expand on this: deep fried ham, duck, and Turkey would surely convince people to eet Les cau meet.

People like Anna Wurtzburger should have to pay all court costs when garbage suits like that are thrown out. They should also print out all the suit's paperwork, single sided, staple it together, and actually throw it directly at her head. Then, the lawyer that took her case should be disbarred, too.

Does a chicken bucket really cost $20? Holy cats! She could have ordered 4 of those box deals.

It does. Oddly enough I hadn't eaten KFC for at least 15 years, but I was intrigued by their new "Nashville Hot Chicken", so I had me a bunch last weekend, and some of their regular chicken for good measure. It wasn't very good, it's going to be at least 15 years before I fall for that again. My own fried chicken is a thousand times better and doesn't cost $35+

What is the matter with you???  The bucket was HALF FULL.  Either you don't understand how important the difference is, or you're a vegan.

I read this story on a news site, and many commentators pointed out that the order was for an 8 piece bucket, and they never look like the pics show, or they'd never be able to get the lid on. She suffered zero damages, she got exactly what she ordered, and paid for. She's lucky if a jury awards her $20, let alone $20 million.

This should be in deal discussion for a potential class action. But not in the class action thread in deal discussion, that's just a thread for discussing class actions and not for new/upcoming class actions.

  Yes, but there is no potential for this action to have any class... so maybe it just doesn't belong anywhere?

She suffered great physical and mental damage because her eating during the baseball playoffs or World Series was calibrated for a full bucket, and when the food ran out early, she kept trying to eat chicken but instead ate her hand.

She had to have hired a lawyer because what lawyer would take this on a contingency?

Maggots on society... and the lawyers that represent them...

Her first clue should have been when the lid was on the container... and not overflowing with chicken.

Whenever I go to Chick-Fil-A with the wife, it seems that she always gets a bigger piece of chicken in her sandwich than I do. Fortunately I am able to trick her into switching sandwiches with me... muhahaha

There are photographers that make their living jazzing up the ingredients in a fast food menu item making them look like something served in the world's most exclusive restaurants.

I'm willing to bet the photo does not show more chicken than what a customer usually gets. To make it look like a bucket overflowing with chicken, just place all the chicken on top of the lid.

  making their living or not, it is false advertising. Nothing looks like what you see and I'm yelling SCAM, That is like buying a box of cookies that is only 25% full, It is clearly trickery and they should be penalized so businesses have to actually compete, not just compete with make believe images.

 A rare sighting!


Anyway, if my local CFA didn't offer Fried chicken, on a biscuit, with cheese *and* bacon, I probably would go there for breakfast at all.

I don't think I've ever gone to any fast food restaurant and actually gotten an item that resembles the menu photo IN MY WHOLE LIFE.
Yet I keep going back......
