(LOS ANGELES) — Good news for California kids who like to play with their food. A class-action lawsuit seeking to ban toys in Happy Meals in most parts of California was thrown out on Thursday.
The lawsuit was filed in 2010 by the Center for Science in the Public Interest, a consumer advocacy group, and Monet Parham, listed in the suit as a California mother.
Superior Court Judge Richard Kramer did not give a reason for his decision to throw out the suit.
Ordinances in San Francisco and Santa Clara county banning toy giveaways with meals targeted at children are unaffected by the court’s ruling.
