Although the restaurant chain settled a class action lawsuit for $450,000, it maintains its innocence and says it did nothing wrong. A class action lawsuit says that the popular chain Red Robin lied to its paying customers by giving them smaller containers of Stella Artois beer than they were told they would get.
On April 27, 2020, Plaintiff Christopher Bruun filed a lawsuit in Nevada District Court on behalf of Red Robin customers who believe they were overcharged because the size of the small Stella Artois chalice is not standard. The lawsuit says that these practices violate a number of state laws, such as those about consumer fraud, deceptive trade practices, unjust enrichment, and fair dealing.
Although the court has yet to rule on the merits of the case, Red Robin has apparently decided not to defend itself in court and instead settled out of court for $450,000 without admitting guilt. It’s too bad that the main reason for the settlement was to avoid paying legal fees, but at least it will help the people who were hurt.
After deducting $150,000 in legal fees, the remaining funds will be distributed among class members. The settlement benefits are determined by the number of “small” Stella Artois purchased by each class member during a specific time period. The class action does not require proof of purchase, but the settlement amount is lower without it:
Without proof, you get $3 per drink, up to a maximum of five drinks for $15.
With proof, you will receive $3 per drink up to the number of drinks purchased.
