Class action quietly brewing against cola companies targeting children
Secretive Australian lawyers are looking to launch a class action suit against cola companies — and they’re looking in New Zealand.
The lawyers asked Tony Falkenstein, director of Just Water International, to place a newspaper ad seeking respondents on their behalf. He won’t name the lawyers, citing confidentiality.
Mr Falkenstein says he had never heard of the lawyers and he is not financially involved. They probably contacted him because he has been an outspoken opponent of sugar consumption and obesity in New Zealand.
