Illinois Poltician Sues To Force Theaters To Stop Ads
CHICAGO, IL — Miriam Fisch, an Illinois politician who apparently is so fed up with the large number of advertisements that play before the start of movies these days, she has filed a lawsuit against Loews Cineplex to stop them.
According to NoMovieAds.com, which has published the complete complaint, Fisch seeks the following relief:
(d) Enjoining Loews and the defendant Loews class from showing advertisements prior to feature films, and/or an Order forcing Loews and the defendant Loews class to accurately inform customers of the real starting times of movies post-advertisements;
Is this a sign of a new breed of lawsuits to be filed against theater chains in the US and abroad?
