What is a Class Action?
A class action is a lawsuit in which a person sues another party on behalf of all other people who are in a similar position. The individuals who actually bring the lawsuit are referred to as the Class Representatives, while all of the other people who are in a similar position as the Class Representatives are referred to as the Class or Class Members.
You usually see them when corporate America has gone too far, promised too much, delivered too little or had a problem with a good or service many people bought or used.
We are not affiliated with this class action lawsuit.
Me v. Red Bull?
Sometimes class actions can be a little silly or frivolous. You can read the Complaints made against Red Bull, the energy drink here, as this one is a little of both:
- Careathers Class Action Complaint
- Careathers First Amended Class Action Complaint
- Wolf and Almaraz Class Action Complaint
- Order Granting Preliminary Approval of Class Action Settlement
Plaintiffs brought these lawsuits, alleging that Red Bull’s Marketing and labeling misrepresents both the functionality and safety of Red Bull beverages- basically over the marketing campaign saying Red Bull “gives you wings.” Fact is- you will neither grow wings now will it is much more than little boost. It provides no more energy than a cup of coffee or a caffeine pill, according to the lawsuit.
Red Bull denies any and all wrongdoing or liability, and maintain that its marketing and labeling have always been truthful and accurate.
Do I Receive Money?
If you have consumed a Red Bull in the last 12 years, yes. It is on the honor system. The Settlement Class includes all persons who made at least one purchase of Red Bull products in the United States between January 1, 2002 and October 3, 2014.
