Major Dunkin’ Donuts Lawsuit Starting in RI Federal Court

Senior U.S. District Judge Ronald Lagueux will preside over an interesting trial in December between Dunkin’ Donuts and one of their former franchisee owners in downtown Providence.  The Providence Journal has the story.

Irwin Barkan, of Waitsfield, Vt., will return here Dec. 2 as the dispute goes to trial in federal court –– four years after the coffee shop chain and its former franchisee became embroiled in the legal battle.

“I’m a firm believer in the jury system,” Barkan said. “I am anxious to tell the jury my story.”

If he convinces a jury he’s right, he could reap more than $13 million, plus interest.
