Whatever Happened to Sanctions For Frivolous Lawsuits?

April 5, 2012 CBS News reports:

A San Francisco judge has dismissed a proposed class-action lawsuit that sought to stop McDonald's Corp. from using toys to market its meals to children in the Golden State. The suit had been filed in late 2010 by Monet Parham, a California mother of two, and The Center for Science in the Public Interest, a consumer advocacy group based in Washington, D.C.
The suit had claimed that the world's biggest hamburger chain was violating consumer protection laws by using toys to lure them to eat nutritionally unbalanced meal. 
Because of course we all know that without those toys in the Happy Meals, children would be demanding, and parents would be supplying, carrot sticks, cauliflower, and tofu.
