Earlier this week, a Manhattan judge ruled that a group suing McDonald's for causing childhood obesity can't file a class action suit against the company. Instead, any lawsuit against the fast food giant must be brought individually—like in Brazil, where a manager just won a $17K lawsuit against McDonald's over the 65 pounds he gained while working there for a dozen years!

The AP reports that the 32-year-old man said he "felt forced to sample the food each day to ensure that quality standards remained high, because McDonald's hired 'mystery clients' to randomly visit restaurants and report on the food, service and cleanliness." He also faulted the company for giving him free lunches, which he was presumably forced to eat at gunpoint.
