McLibel

The verdict was devastating for McDonald's. The judge ruled that they “exploit children” with their advertising, produce “misleading” advertising, are “culpably responsible” for cruelty to animals, are “antipathetic” to unionisation and pay their workers low wages. But Helen and Dave failed to prove all the points and so the Judge ruled that they HAD libelled McDonald's and should pay 60,000 pounds damages. They refused and McDonald's knew better than to pursue it.
