Who says we live in a litigious society? Stacy Pincus has filed a class action lawsuit against Starbucks in Northern Illinois Federal Court claiming that because of the amount of ice Starbucks uses in their iced beverages, customers often end up with half of the amount of drink that is listed on Starbucks’ menus in fluid ounces. The suit alleges the coffee merchant is doing this purposefully to save on the amount of coffee they have to pour in the cup. And because the word “beverage” is defined as “a drinkable liquid,” and ice isn’t that, if you say 8oz, then you better use a bigger cup since you’re throwing in all that ice. One suspects she’s given a bartender or two a rough time on occasion.

Elephants performed for the last time at the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Sunday, as the show closes its own chapter on a controversial practice that has entertained audiences since circuses began in America two centuries ago. Six Asian elephants delivered their final performances in Providence, Rhode Island, and five performed in Wilkes-Barre, PA during several shows on Sunday. Alana Feld, executive vice president of Feld Entertainment, which owns the circus, said the animals will live at its 200-acre Center for Elephant Conservation in Florida. Its herd of 40 Asian elephants, the largest in North America, will continue a breeding program and be used in a pediatric cancer research project. Elephants have been used in the circus in America for more than 200 years

The focus of the 2016 presidential candidates has shifted to Indiana and the delegates who’ll be awarded on Tuesday – 92 for the Democrats, 57 to the Republicans. Republicans Donald Trump and Ted Cruz spent much of their weekend crisscrossing the Hoosier State, Trump trying to build on the wide lead he’s holding in the polls, Cruz working to make up ground. Between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, a razor’s-edge margin looms over Indiana. ABC’s Jim Ryan will have the latest from Indianapolis.
