Boston man sues Dunkin’ Donuts after asking for real butter, getting a substitute

An attorney for one franchisee confirms that the case has been settled and the stores have changed their butter-serving protocol

State Route 46 in Howland is always busy. Don Pascute, a Warren man, said he was in the Dunkin' Donuts drive-thru Saturday afternoon just as Nassar Hamad was firing his gun at his house along Route 46.

BOSTON (AP) – A Massachusetts man who sued a pair of Dunkin’ Donuts owners because he said he was given a butter substitute when he asked for real butter on his bagel has won a settlement.

The Boston Globe (http://bit.ly/2ogQP2u ) reports that Jan Polanik’s suits name two companies that together own more than 20 stores.

Polanik’s lawyer, Thomas Shapiro, acknowledged that his client’s complaint is “a minor thing,” but they decided to sue “to stop the practice of representing one thing and selling a different thing.”

Shapiro did not disclose the settlement’s terms, because it hasn’t yet been filed with the court.

An attorney for one franchisee confirms that the case has been settled and the stores have changed their butter-serving protocol. A spokesman for the other franchisee could not be reached.
