Hockey Fans File Lawsuit Over Arena Beer
The exact charge contained in the lawsuit alleges that CenturyLink Arena, which hosts the amateur league Idaho Steelheads hockey team, committed willful fraud by charging an extra $3 for a "large" cup that contains no more beer than the shorter and wider cup that is advertised as the "small" size.
The suit is being treated as a serious fraud allegation. Four fans have joined together to file the action in Boise's 4th District Court. Block 22 LLC, which conducts its business as Century Link Area, is named as the defendant in the case. The four fans who filed the suit are listed as Brady Peck, Michele Bonds and William and Brittany Graham. Together, the four are asking for a total of $10,000 in damages.
Wyatt Johnson, who represents the fans in their action, had this to say: "While different shapes, both cup sizes hold substantially the same amount of liquid and are not large versus small in actual capacity. Defendants knowingly sold each of their beers in a similar manner at each event held at the arena where beer was sold for at least the last five years."
