Ate At Subway? You May Be Owed Some Money

Subway2Nine times out of ten, you’re probably one of the tens of millions of people who has purchased a 6- or 12-inch Subway sandwich in the U.S. since 2003. If you are, you’re entitled to a cut of a class action settlement involving the franchise.

The class action lawsuit the nine named plaintiffs in the preliminary resolution approved by a federal judge in Milwaukee this month will see any money – up to $1,000 each.

This news may come as a shock because you probably never took the time to measure it, but “footlong” and “6-inch” sandwiches from the chain Subway have not historically been their entire length. Back in 2013, customers in different states filed class actions alleging that the sandwiches usually measure 11 to 11.5 inches. While most customers and many sandwich artists would say “close enough,” some consumers were unable to roll with 11.5-inch and 5.75-inch sandwiches.

This is the same class action that’s been working its way through the legal system since 2013. This case combined seven separate ones, which were filed amidst a lot of public backlash in 2012 over sandwich lengths.
