The Red Bull class action lawsuit is complete bull****. Sorry, I figured that was the easiest way to get your attention.
In case you have not heard about it, the Austria-based drink giant settled a class action lawsuit for false advertising a couple of weeks ago for $13 million. As part of the settlement, consumers who bought the drink between January 1, 2002 and October 3, 2014 are eligible to receive $10 cash or $15 worth of Red Bull products.
So at some point in 2015 you will receive your payment. The suit argued that customers were misled by claims about the benefits of drinking Red Bull, with a specific focus on statements such as “Red Bull gives you wings.” Red Bull said it settled the suit to “avoid the cost and distraction of litigation” but denied it did any wrong doing.
