On February 11, 1999, the Los Angeles Times published an article on a lawsuit filed by Mukesh K. Rai, a Hindu from Carpinteria, CA. Rai sued Taco Bell for serving him a beef burrito when he asked for a bean burrito in April 1997. Rai settled the lawsuit for an undisclosed amount. "The principles to me are far more important than the actual settlement," Rai said. "But Taco Bell has trivialized the importance of this suit. They still haven't shown any remorse."
