A few students at my alma mater, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, are suing for cheaper beer:
A Minneapolis law firm Wednesday filed a class-action suit against 24 Madison bars and the Dane County Tavern League alleging a conspiracy to illegally fix drink prices through bans on late-night weekend drink specials.It's a tough job market out there, boys. It wouldn't hurt to cut back on the boozing and crack a book for a change.
The suit, filed in Dane County Circuit Court on behalf of three bar patrons, seeks "tens of millions of dollars" in damages for all customers allegedly cheated by the practice. It also would break the "cartel," as the lawsuit refers to the group of bars who participated in the ban, and seeks to reinstate "competitive pricing."
