Welcome to the Oliva v. Anheuser-Busch website.
This website contains information regarding a proposed class action settlement that is pending in the Circuit Court in and for Miami-Dade County, Florida entitled Gustavo E. Oliva et al. v. Anheuser-Busch Companies, LLC, Case No. 13-033620 CA 01.
NATURE OF THE SETTLEMENT
The lawsuit alleges that Anheuser-Busch Companies, LLC ("A-B") misrepresented to consumers that Kirin Ichiban and Kirin Light beers are brewed in and imported from Japan. Plaintiffs alleged that these beers are in fact domestically brewed but priced as a premium imported beer. Plaintiffs maintain that Defendant’s actions constitute violations of Florida’s Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act, Fla. Stat. §§ 501.201-501.2101. Further, Plaintiffs claim that Defendant was unjustly enriched by said conduct.
Defendant denies Plaintiffs' claims and charges, denies that it has violated any laws, and believes that its labeling, packaging, and marketing of Kirin Ichiban and Kirin Light have always been truthful and not deceptive.
THE SETTLEMENT CLASS
You are included in the Settlement if you purchased bottles and/or cans of Kirin Ichiban beer or Kirin Light beer brewed and sold by Defendant in the United States for personal, family, or household purposes and not for re-sale from October 25, 2009 to December 17, 2014.
