    WASHINGTON, April 21, 2014 (AFP) - Coca-Cola was taken to task by the US Supreme Court on Monday, with justices questioning whether a drink sold as fruit juice was the real thing.

    The US soft drinks giant is being sued by Californian fruit juice maker Pom Wonderful, who accuse Coca-Cola of misleading consumers about its Minute Maid drink "Pomegranate Blueberry" that contains only 0.5 percent of the two fruits.
    Pom Wonderful attorney Seth Waxman said consumers were being misled by Coca-Cola branding the drink -- which was mostly apple or grape -- as "Pomegranate Blueberry."

    Pom Wonderful, which sells 100 percent pomegranate juice, was suffering as a result of Coca-Cola's practices, Waxman argued.

    Coca-Cola won an earlier case in a San Francisco court, which ruled that the company's labeling practices were consistent with US Food and Drug Administration rules.

    According to Coca-Cola attorney Kathleen Sullivan, the FDA was responsible for a "national uniformity" of labeling.

    Justice Anthony Kennedy asked whether it was "Coke's position that national uniformity consists in labels that cheat the consumers like this one did."

    Justice Samuel Alito also asked whether consumers purchasing the product expecting to receive the health benefits of pomegranate juice "would be very surprised to find... that it has less than one-half of 1 percent of pomegranate juice."
    A decision is expected in June.

    If the US Supreme Court decision is in favour of Coca-Cola, it proves the saying that "the law is an ass."
