My original blogpost was October of 2014. Update on that blog is this statement from EnergyDrinkSettlement.com.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: The Court held a Final Approval Hearing on May 1, 2015 and approved the Settlement; however two appeals were filed shortly thereafter.

Maybe, one day, when my kidney’s give out and I can sue like the rest of this country when they make continuous bad decisions, I will be rich.
