As the debate over the nation’s expanding waistline continues, trial lawyers and food cop organizations (led by George Washington University Law Professor John Banzhaf and the Center for Science in the Public Interest) are determined to gain a super-sized payday by suing restaurants and food companies. The Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) unveiled its latest television commercial today, lampooning the relentless efforts of those that seek to cash in on the nation’s obesity.

In June CCF unveiled its popular “Cookies” TV ad, which depicted a greedy trial lawyer grilling a young scout because she sold cookies to his overweight client. CCF’s newest commercial begins airing nationally this week. The new ad follows the continuing saga of the trial lawyer and his ridiculous pursuit of obesity lawsuit plaintiffs-and a fat wallet.

The 30-second ad, “Greedy Lawyer”, airs nationally this week on CNN and the Fox News Channel.

The Center for Consumer Freedom is a nonprofit coalition supported by restaurants, food companies, and consumers working together to promote personal responsibility and protect consumer choices.
