#1 The judge noted that the same plaintiffs firm, Hewell Law Firm in San Diego, had filed a similar claim against the packaging of Fruit Loops cereal, which was rejected by another California district court. The Hewell Law Firm is headed by Harold Hewell, identified by the State Bar web site as a graduate of the California Western School of Law in San Diego and admitted to the bar in California in 1994.

I believe some research is in order...

#3 He seems to have a "thing" about cereal...

SACRAMENTO (CN) - A federal class action claims that General Mills pushes Cheerios with false claims that it will lower cholesterol and prevent heart attacks. laintiffs claim the U.S. FDA warned General Mills in a May 5 letter that the label on its Cheerios Toasted Whole Grain Oat Cereal violated the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.

According to the complaint, the FDA specifically objected to these claims on the label: "you can Lower Your Cholesterol 4% in 6 weeks"; and "Did you know that in just 6 weeks Cheerios can reduce bad cholesterol by an average of 4 percent? Cheerios is ... clinically proven to lower cholesterol. A clinical study showed that eating two 1 1/2 cup servings daily of Cheerios cereal reduced bad cholesterol when eaten as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol."

The class claims that the label for regular Cheerios makes similar claims, but boasts of "10% in one month!".Plaintiffs seek punitive damages and costs. They are represented by Harold Hewell of San Diego, Howard Rubinstein of Aspen, Colo., and Joe Whatley Jr. with Whatley, Drake & Kallas of New York, N.Y.

#4 Again with the cereal fetish...

A mom from California is suing three major cereal manufacturers this morning. She says the companies intentionally misled consumers with claims of low-sugar cereals that are replaced by equally fattening carbohydrates. Jennifer Hardee is suing General Mills, Kellogg's and Kraft Foods, the parent company of Post. She joins me now from Sacramento, along with her lawyer, Harold Hewell.

He's out of San Diego. Ever hear of this guy, Frank?

#6 it's positively painful to see what greedy fools are suing over

A pretty blatant attempt at an early retirement. To me what is disturbing is that there are enough people who believe the system is so fuc&ed up that they feel they stand a reasonable chance to get away with it. Common sense has taken so much of a back seat that too many court cases are decided by side-effects of previous court cases, instead of common sense and law being applied directly to the court case at hand.
