Monster Energy Accused of Causing Teen’s Death

Caffeine is fuel that runs law students.  Personally, I enjoy a cup of black coffee in the morning.  I’ve never been a big fan of energy drinks but they are definitely popular around campus.

Recently, the New York Times reported that a mother, Wendy Crossland, filed a lawsuit against Monster Energy for causing her 14-year-old daughter’s death.  The young girl drank the company’s energy drinks over two days and suffered a heart arrhythmia.  The mother’s products liability lawsuit is based on the theory that the energy drinks had a warning defect because drinkers were not warned about the risks.
