  • 2 NJ men sue Subway over short footlong sandwiches!!!

    Two New Jersey men sued Subway this week, claiming the world's biggest fast-food chain has been shorting them by selling so-called footlong sandwiches that measure a bit less than 12 inches.

    The suit, filed Tuesday in Superior Court in Mount Holly, may be the first legal filing aimed at the sandwich shops after an embarrassment went viral last week when someone posted a photo of a footlong and a ruler on the company's Facebook page to show that the sandwich was not as long as advertised.

    At the time, the company issued a statement saying that the sandwich length can vary a bit when franchises do not bake to the exact corporate standards.

    Stephen DeNittis, the lawyer for the plaintiffs in the New Jersey suit, said he's seeking class-action status and is also preparing to file a similar suit in Pennsylvania state court in Philadelphia.

    He said he's had sandwiches from 17 shops measured

    Roll Tide!!!!!

      A gold digger.  Subway will give him $1000 - $2500.

        I don't blame them for their anger.  Subway's subs are mediocre and sub-par, but I don't think Subway should be sued for it. It's what you pretty much expect when you walk into a fast-food restaurant.

        It would be more fitting if the judge ordered Subway to give them one inch of sandwich bread.

        And the "gold digger?" She's suing the guy because he was "an inch shorter" than he claimed. It ruined her whole "romantic experience."

      You know what it's like coming up short. No suprise here.

        They're just looking for deep pockets and keeping the trial lawyers in business (thanks!) I'm sure there are lots of foot long hotdogs sold in stands that aren't a foot long, and a quarter pounder doesn't weigh a quarter pound.

        You can also make a false advertising claim if the product shown in a product demonstration has been modified or enhanced to perform better than an off the shelf product.

        Volvo got in trouble for reinforcing the roofs of cars shown in an ad where a monster truck rolls over them. Apple did a similar thing when it showed the iPhone with SIRI actually producing a series of useful answers on the first try.
