Tim Hortons says the proposed Roll Up to Win class action lawsuit has no merit

Tim Hortons says there is no merit in a proposed class action lawsuit involving emails wrongly sent to participants in its popular Roll Up to Win promotion.

LPC Avocat Inc. has launched a proposed class action lawsuit, alleging that approximately 500,000 customers received an email on April 17 informing them that they had won a boat through Roll up to Win.

The law firm says the boat is worth about $64,000.

The proposed lawsuit, which has yet to be certified, claims the defendants are owed both the boat and damages.

Tim Hortons says the email was sent due to “human error,” and once the company became aware of the error, it quickly notified affected customers and apologized.

It says it believes the lawsuit has no merit and will pursue it through the courts.
