Red Bull Sued over Energy Claims

The lawsuit claims that Red Bull uses deceptive marketing to charge a premium for a product whose claims are largely unfounded.

"Defendants are able to charge and get a substantial premium for their products over readily available and much lower priced sources of caffeine that provide the same or substantially similar results," the lawsuit said.
