Buffalo Wild Wings issued a hilarious response to a class-action lawsuit challenging the restaurant's claim that it serves "boneless wings."
What is the lawsuit about?
Chicago man Aimen Halim accused Buffalo Wild Wings of false and deceptive business practices, alleging its "boneless wings" are nothing more than glorified chicken nuggets.
The lawsuit says that despite Buffalo Wild Wing's advertising, its boneless wings are "slices of chicken breast meat deep-fried like wings."
"This clear-cut case of false advertising should not be permitted, as consumers should be able to rely on the plain meaning of a product’s name and receive what they are promised," the lawsuit states.
The lawsuit claims Halim "suffered a financial injury" from Buffalo Wild Wings' "false and deceptive conduct." Halim claims that if he knew the boneless wings were not, in fact, wings from a chicken, then he never would have purchased them. He also asserts that if Buffalo Wild Wings' patrons knew the truth about the "boneless wings," then they would not purchase them.
How did BWW responds?
The restaurant chain, which has nearly 1,300 locations, confirmed that its boneless wings are not, in fact, wings. The company proceeded to mock the premise of the lawsuit.
"It’s true. Our boneless wings are all white meat chicken," the company said on Twitter. "Our hamburgers contain no ham. Our buffalo wings are 0% buffalo."
What did the judge say?
On Monday, U.S. District Judge John Tharp Jr. dismissed the lawsuit on procedural grounds.
According to the Cook County Record, the judge tossed the case because "plaintiffs failed to properly identify the parties involved." He gave them until March 27 to refile their case.
Lawyers for the plaintiff said the case will be fixed and refiled.
