(Daily Mail) A judge has dismissed a proposed class-action lawsuit filed in California that sought to stop McDonald's from using toys to market its Happy Meals.
Judge Richard Kramer, who sits at the San Fransisco Superior Court, threw out the case brought by a mother who was concerned with the tactic.
Monet Parham and The Center for Science in the Public Interest, a consumer group in Washington, D.C. filed the suit in 2010.
The lawsuit claimed that the hamburger chain was exploiting children's vulnerability by using toys to lure them to eat meals that could lead to obesity.
They wanted McDonald's to remove the toys from Happy Meals or offer healthier options for the lunch boxes. The lawsuit did not seek damages.
