King, Hawaii, Hilo discussed on Bill Handel


Resnick and me. And real quickly before we jump into they have a case. The big stories that we're covering theme the president Saturday phone call the secretary state of Georgia, literally almost ordering him were telling him to change the about the vote count is changing. And so there's huge, obviously huge conversation about that, and well, we'll talk more about that tomorrow. Certainly, and tomorrow is the election in Georgia. The Senate run off and the next day is the vote in the Senate and Congress to confirm the election of Joe Biden. So we've got a hell of a week to say the least. But let's go into our normal Monday. Do they have a case with Wayne and me? All right now, usually I bring you cases that have been decided. Usually at the federal appellate level, meaning Pretty much the cases I bring. You are done. And have nowhere else to go because the Supreme Court hears somebody. Now this is a little different. But because I know that second only two baguettes. One of your favorite things are King's Hawaiian roles. That is correct. This is a lawsuit that's just been filed against the makers of King's Hawaiian rolls. Ah, guy from my younger street. Yeah. Ah guy from Yonkers, New York. It's a class action lawsuit, and he says that King's Hawaiian rolls knowingly deceive people. Because on the front of the package, it says he lo Hawaii. But when you read the label on the back, you find out they're made in Torrance, California, and this guy says that It's more important. To consumers, the Hilo Hawaii connection, then it is even the quality of these roles when they decide to buy them, therefore, putting Hilo, Hawaii on the front He is so important to a consumer's decision to pick that product that it's deceptive now. One thing you should know. Here's what it says on the front. It says established 1950. He lo Hawaii and King's Hawaiian roles, in fact, did start in Hilo, Hawaii, in 1950. When the guy who started it opened up a bakery. And then later he moved everything to Southern California because it was easier to distribute this stuff. So it is a fact that it was established in 1950 in Hilo, Hawaii, but This lawsuit says You're still deceiving people by putting that on the front. Does he have any kind of case? Well, I think he has an argument. Certainly, I mean, it's not a summary judgment is not going to find a fly on that one because there is an issue and then the question is, Is it deceptive? And then the issue is because I think you can argue deception here. To some extent, you could argue that someone with the I Q of par golf, for example, 72 could somehow be confused. However, is there a point of reasonable in us? Where does the court determine what is reasonable. For example, let's say on the back, there is some kind of an ingredient that is misspelled. Uh, on the ingredient list there. Four eyes assumed it was something else because I know how to spell gum. Right. For example, it's gum pride. You know, whatever they use in virtually every product, Larkham Gorgon am, and it's G O. M. Instead of G, Um, therefore you are deceiving me. Well, yeah, technically, if you're a complete moron, Yeah, You could argue that So the court is, I think going to say King's Hawaiian bread. It was established the 1950. Doesn't necessarily connect, saying it's still there. And so I'm going to simply argue that he just went one step too far in arguing what is truly a technicality. So I think he loses. Yeah, well, we'll have to see if the court let's go. What's your take on it? I don't think he's got a case because I'm looking and I'm looking at the specifics of this. First of all, he lo Hawaii is always presented in conjunction with the phrase established 1950. They're different sizes of lettering on the front of Ah King's Hawaiian roll package. This part established 1950. Hilo, Hawaii is in very small type compared to, for example, the words Hawaiian roles that are very big. So he lo Hawaii is always presented in conjunction with established and when you turn the thing over, it's very clear that they're made in distributed out of Torrance, California. So I can't. I can't imagine that you're going to say that any company you're not allowed to indicate on the packaging for your product where your company was founded or originated because some guy like this will try to turn it into a class action lawsuit. Well, I mean, the argument goes on. You could say that. But you would then have to say now in torrents or no longer in hell. Oh, eyes where he is going with that, And I This clearly is some attorney who woke up and had nothing to do. There are attorneys out there who do nothing but hustle class action suits. That's what they do most of them being frivolous. The mass majority hoping some kind of a nuisance settlement, Some are massive. I mean, some are legitimately huge. But those go to real law firms with real lawyers who, when that's not to say the lawyers who filed these frivolous suits are not real lawyers, But it's the different Let's say this. It's the difference between what I do on handle on the law. Uh, and, uh, what anybody else does? Who knows how to spell l a law? L A W all right, And one more thing was nothing before the brain. By the way, it's the other way. Uh, it's the person who spells law correctly. That is the advantage against me on me. Go ahead. Just if you wanna have a complaint about King's Hawaiian rolls and you of all people would be entitled. Have this complaint. It's that that style of role isn't really Hawaiian. That's a Portuguese sweet roll. That's the origin of that type of role. It's from the Portuguese people. Hmm. Nobody's suggesting you sue King's Hawaiian for saying they're Hawaiian roles. I'm just saying, if you go back and look at the origin that by the way, you probably gave some sleazeball attorney an idea right now, and that lawsuit is probably started probably be filed tomorrow. All right, let's take a break. We'll come back and finish up. Uh, the last segment of do they have a case? Uh, Michael Closer, The Ko Phi newsroom was going.
