Peter Burke Gets Favorable Reversal In Suchanek v. Sturm

On June 4, 2014, Peter Burke argued to the 7th Circuit in the consolidated case of Suchanek v. Sturm, contending that the District Court committed reversible error in not certifying a class of consumers from eight states that had purchased Defendant’s instant coffee product for their Keurig brewers, and further, by entering summary judgment against each of the named plaintiffs.  On August 22, 2014, the Seventh Circuit reversed the district court on both accounts entering the attached opinion. The lawyers at Burke Harvey believe that this opinion vindicates the rights of consumers to assert claims for products whose advertising is deceptive and or misleading to a reasonable consumer.
