Subway Tuna Case: Federal Judge allows lawsuit filed by Indian American to progress

Nilima Amin and Karen Dhanowa of California's Alameda County filed the initial lawsuit last January. Based on Subway's labelling, packaging, and advertising, they claimed that they were "tricked into buying food items that wholly lacked the ingredients they reasonably thought they were purchasing."

A federal judge ruled earlier this month that certain parts of an amended lawsuit brought by an Indian American woman against Subway for using "various concoctions" instead of tuna in its sandwiches and wraps can proceed.

By issuing the ruling, U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar of the Northern District of California denied the restaurant chain's request to dismiss the lawsuit filed against it. The lawsuit claims that the restaurant chain's tuna sandwiches and wraps are completely devoid of tuna.
