Plaintiffis in Quiznos Cases Outline Reasons to Keep Fighting



Plaintiffs in lawsuits against Quiznos are fighting back, registering their opposition to multiple motions by the defendants to dismiss the cases.

The franchisor’s motions to dismiss “put the cart before the horse” and contain “slap-dash arguments” that have “little, if any, merit,” according to Jeffrey Springer and Jason Astle of Springer and Steinberg in Denver, attorneys for the plaintiffs.

Their filing in U.S. District Court in Denver details in 45 pages the reasons why they believe the cases should proceed to trial. The original lawsuits put the dispute this way: "The defendants named in this action ruthlesly pursued the fraudulent scheme alleged above...to plaintiffs' financial and emotional detrminet."

The October issue of Franchise Times contains a full report on the dispute, including comments by Quiznos’ outside attorney, Ric Cohen of Cheng Cohen in Chicago.

"What's frustrating to me is when franchisees or particular counsel continue to pursue claims that at this point it ought to be clear to them have no merit," Cohen told Franchise Times.
