POM Wonderful LLC v. Coca-Cola Co. (9th Cir. - May 17, 2012)

You apparently can't sue someone -- even if you hire a fancy lawyer -- when they deceptively mislabel their juice product.  That's what the Ninth Circuit holds today.

Okay.  But I'm still not going to drink Minute Maid's "Pomegranate Blueberry" drink.  Which I now know actually contains virtually no pomegranate or blueberry juice, but instead is filled with cheaper apple and grape juice.

Caveat emptor.
