You may not be allowed to sue General Mills

  • If you have downloaded coupons for General Mills and liked the company on Facebook, you may not be eligible to sue it. The New York Times noted new language in the company's privacy policy, which suggests that interacting with it in any way would result in customers having to settle disputes via arbitration. 

    The Supreme Court allowed for this change when it ruled AT&T v. Concepcion in 2011. "Although this is the first case I've seen of a food company moving in this direction, others will follow - why wouldn't you?" a source from a trial lawyers trade group said. "It's essentially trying to protect the company from all accountability."
