Judge: "No" to class action lawsuit for Musikfest beer stein
A bid for a class action fraud lawsuit related to Musikfest beer mugs has failed.
A federal court says a lawsuit from Rebecca Stoneback and Michael Grube doesn't meet class action requirements -- it's more about individual issues.
Stoneback and Grube claim ArtsQuest sold beer steins advertised as being made in Germany.
They were actually made in China and underwent final assembly in Germany.
Stoneback is a former ArtsQuest employee who filed a wrongful termination lawsuit after bringing the issue to light and losing her job.
ArtsQuest paid her a $25,000 dollar judgement offer but didn't admit to doing anything wrong.
The ruling does not preclude other legal action.
