The last year has been a busy one for Monster Beverage Corp. in court, and this year just got a little busier. California mother Paula Morris filed a lawsuit against the company on Tuesday over the death of her 19-year-old son Alex.
Alex Morris died last year after going into cardiac arrest, and the lawsuit explains that he drank two cans of Monster's energy drink every day over three years, the Associated Press reports.
14-year-old Anais Fournier's parents also filed a suit against Monster in 2012, and their attorney, Alexander Wheeler, is now representing Morris. Additionally, Monster filed its own lawsuit against Dennis Herrera, the San Francisco city attorney seeking to get the company to quit marketing its drinks to underage youth.
