Red Bull, the popular energy drink whose slogan is "gives you wings," provides no more energy than a cup of coffee or a caffeine pill, according to a lawsuit made public on Wednesday.

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.
