As ConAgra moves to dismiss the suit against it and its Hebrew National brand, the plaintiffs filed a new, amended complaint. Does this class action lawsuit have legs?

I don't think so.

I concur - this is simply at run at a company who has grabbed a lot of market share and needs to be stopped (in the eyes of other producers of fine kosher beef bi-products shoved into a tube) at all costs,

I think 'misunderstanding' is the key to most of the world's problems that we try to solve with litigation.

If we could sit down and really understand each other, we wouldn't have these types of situations to deal with.

Eli, what me messiah?

Remember, though, that the complaint tried to sidestep this problem by focusing on quality and whether the "highest standards of Orthodox Jews" had been applied. As I think I commented back then, this seemed a tactic to broaden the number of potential plaintiffs in the class, potentially even to include non-Jews who bought Hebrew National because they thought the "highest standards" was a guarantee of higher quality.
But, yeah, I agree with everyone else. This ain't got no legs. The plaintiffs' lawyers tried to turn a labor case into a class action and didn't think through how they would prove their claims.

I think this is more a subject for a law blog focusing on fake class action lawsuits than for a religious blog.
