One more subject to add to Siamak's list of McDonald's lies:
The judge also found that McDonald's had falsely accused Helen and Dave of lying. The only reason McDonald's won on the counterclaim was that McDonald's was protected by the legal concept of 'qualified privilege' which took the form of the "right of reply to an attack" made by the defendants and supporters. In other words the $30 billion a year McDonald's were so under attack from two members of the public that they were legally permitted to publish libellous statements about the two.
What a joke.
