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.
