Hudson Valley Woman’s $20M KFC Lawsuit Dismissed
The Dutchess County woman who filed a $20 million lawsuit against Kentucky Fried Chicken for false advertising will not get a dime. The case has been dismissed.
Chicken lover or not, you had to be shocked and amused when you heard about this lawsuit in October of 2016. Anna Wurtzburger from Hopewell Junction decided to sue after alleging that the KFC bucket of chicken is overflowing on the TV commercial, but according to the Poughkeepsie Journal, her reality was something totally different.
When Wurtzburger "received the bucket of chicken there were only eight pieces of chicken in it," according to her legal complaint. "There was not enough chicken in the bucket to fill up the bucket... (the ads) falsely stated that 'the meal could feed your whole family.'"
A full bucket is obviously in the eye of the beholder. Here's what Wurtzburger had to say about the staggering $20 million settlement she was seeking when TMZ caught up with her.
Judge Nelson Roman of the U.S. District Court in the Southern District of New York dismissed the case on Wednesday. He ruled that the grounds of Wurtzburger's claim didn't prove a violation of law or that she was due a legal (monetary) payout.
