  • Taco Bell wins Chalupa price case after claiming lawyers doctored evidence, plaintiffs ignored menu
April 27, 2020

A federal judge has ruled that the couple who sued Taco Bell because their Chalupa boxes cost 99 cents more than they thought failed to pay attention to the price on the menu, and that evidence presented by the plaintiff’s lawyer may have been doctored, according to a report in Legal Newsline.

The lawyers representing the plaintiffs argued a disclaimer included as part of the advertisement for the boxes was not conspicuous because it was white text on a light gray background, but according to Taco Bell the background on a screenshot of the commercial presented by the plaintiff’s lawyer “appears to have been doctored;” the background on the commercial was a much darker gray. After viewing a video of the ad, the judge found that the background in the original ad was the darker gray that Taco Bell claimed.
