Starbucks lawsuit over ice

Starbucks lawsuit

Starbucks is fighting back against a lawsuit it claims is absurd. 

The coffee giant is being sued for $5 million over the amount of ice it puts in its beverages after a woman in Illinois reportedly filed a 29-page complaint in federal court last week. 

The woman said Starbucks customers are being misled because the company's iced drinks contain just over half the drink they are paying for. The lawsuit is a class action on behalf of anyone who has ordered an iced beverage from Starbucks in the last decade. 

In a statement, Starbucks said "Our customers understand and expect that ice is an essential component of an 'iced' beverage."
