A Safeway customer in Portland is suing the supermarket for having to pay an extra charge on certain non-grocery items that he claimed he didn't know would be paid until he saw his invoice.
The complaint filed by the Multnomah County Circuit Court on Monday is second-class litigation against a Portland company paying a surcharge to consumers in direct reaction to a proposed 1% city tax on certain large retailers.
It accuses Safeway of unlawful trading practices and unfair enrichment for charging a 3-cent surcharge on a bottle of wine advertised for $3.33. The first lawsuit was brought against AT&T for charging a 5-cent surcharge to its wireless telephone customer.
Portland officials said that AT&T should not charge customers for the Clean Energy Surcharge because they are exempt from tax as a utility company. The city has not stated any exception for Safeway.

Давид Бурлюк возвращается в Москву
Даже если вы не знаете авангардного поэта и художника Давида Бурлюка, вы, вероятно, сразу узнаете его образ: коренастый мужчина в сюртуке и цилиндре, с моноклем в одном глазу и абстрактным рисунком на его лице. Он был одним из самых плодовитых и разносторонних деятелей культуры России. Называясь «отцом русского футуризма», он работал художником практически во всех стилях 20-го века: реализме, импрессионизме, неоимпрессионизме, примитивизме, фовизме, кубизме и футуризме. Он был наиболее известен своими картинами, но считал себя поэтом. Он не был таким великим художником, как его коллега и друг Михаил Ларионов, или таким же великим поэтом, как его другой близкий друг Владимир Маяковский, но он был несравненным и незаменимым лидером всех русских художников-авангардистов и поэтов. Он очень серьезно относился к своему искусству и поэзии.
Большинство россиян знают, кем он был, почти никто не видел ничего, кроме одного или двух его работ. Но спустя более столетия в Московском музее русского импрессионизма проходит грандиозная ретроспектива его картин, стихов и самоизданных книг. Шоу отражает ртутный характер художника. Это серьезное, научное шоу, представленное с небольшой игривостью - как и положено Давиду Бурлюку.
