Lawyer sues McDonald's China for about 13 cents
A lawyer named Shan sued McDonald's restaurants in Beijing, China, for about 13 cents (1 Yuan) after he ate at two of its restaurants and found receipts that were not entirely in Chinese. Shan claimed that the receipts, printed mostly in English, violated the consumers' right to know. According to a McDonald's official, the receipts were changed to Chinese from July, and all its menus and advertisements were in Chinese. However, the lawyer had with him receipts of May and June. Along with the 13 cents compensation, Shan also demanded an apology from McDonald's for not using the local dialect in its receipts.
