The great-grandchildren of the founder of Barq's root beer have filed a suit against The Coca-Cola Company in September 2010 alleging Coca-Cola does not legally own all the rights to Barq's Root Beer.  The estate of Arthur Louis Robinson (grandson of Barq's founder Edward Charles Edmond Barq Sr.) complains that the 1995 acquisition by The Coca-Cola Company did not obtain the legal rights for 1/3 of the the Barq's company.  The plaintiff is asking for 1/3 interest in the "fruits and revenues generated and produced" by the acquisition of Barq's "including, without limitation, the increase in value of those rights, the revenues generated from the use of the Barq's trademark" in Louisiana.
