Morgan & Morgan drops Monster lawsuits


All Lawsuits Filed Against Monster Energy Company Dismissed

The law firm of Morgan & Morgan, which filed more than a dozen lawsuits against Monster Energy Company and Monster Beverage Corporation in February and March of 2016 claiming that drinking Monster Energy drinks caused a variety of ailments, has abandoned all lawsuits. The Florida-based personal injury law firm asked courts to dismiss the suits after filing.

On its website, Morgan & Morgan said this about Monster's products, "The excessive amounts of caffeine in these drinks, combined with ingredients such as guarana and taurine that act similarly to caffeine, create a substance that may be unhealthy for consumption."

“The voluntary dismissal of these lawsuits, we believe, speaks volumes,” said Marc P. Miles of Shook, Hardy & Bacon, counsel for Monster Energy Company. “We believe fairness dictates that the media now write about the dismissals.”

Shortly after filing the lawsuits, Morgan & Morgan held a press conference which resulted in a number of media outlets broadcasting, posting or printing news stories about alleged claims of injury by Monster.

Mr. Miles continued, “There is a lot of misinformation in the public about energy drinks. Once the substantial body of scientific evidence is reviewed, the safety of Monster Energy drinks becomes readily apparent.

“Recent scientific studies specifically conducted on Monster Energy drinks and published in peer-reviewed medical journals concluded there was no safety concern associated with the consumption of Monster Energy drinks. Over the past 14 years, more than 16 billion Monster Energy drinks have been sold and safely consumed worldwide,” he said.
