Conflict Within Anheuser-Busch Company

Employees working at the Anheuser-Busch company claims that the beer company has altered the alcoholic content of beers by watering down the drinks. In response the employee, James Clark, the Anheuser-Busch submitted a lawsuit to sue Clark for conducting trade secrets.

The lawsuit, filed in Sacramento on March 29th, should be dismissed due to the California law which bars strategic lawsuits against public participation in terms of intimidation.

According to Clark’s attorney Robert Carichoff, the lawsuit against Clark is used to silence him and to punish him for standing up for the general public. He also stresses the point that if this case is allowed to be tried then it will cause conflict between the employee for speaking out for the general public and their own safety.

Additional cases of such altercation of water where issued in 8 other lawsuits which claims that beer were watered down in Bud Ice, Budweiser, Busch Ice and Michelob beer. Anheuser-Busch has fought back at these allegation by starting a water donation campaign where they donated canned water for disaster relief and stating that people probably tested that rather than their original beer.
