Mayan Mooney et. al. v. Monster Beverage Corporation, et. al., Case No. 37-2014-20192-CU-BT-CTL, Superior Court of California, San Diego
On June 19, 2014, a complaint was filed against Monster Beverage Corporation and Monster Energy Company (collectively, “Monster”) in the Superior Court of California, County of San Diego, Case No. 37-2014-20192. The First Amended Complaint was filed on March 11, 2015 and alleges causes of action based on violations of the Unfair Competition Law (Bus. & Prof. Code, §§ 17200-17209), the False Advertising Law (Bus. & Prof. Code, §§ 17500-17509), the Consumers Legal Remedies Act (Civ. Code, §§ 1750-1784), and unjust enrichment.
After reviewing the evidence produced in discovery and considering the risks of further litigation with an impending trial date, Plaintiffs and their counsel have concluded that it is in the best interests of the Settlement Classes to enter into this settlement. Monster, while continuing to deny all allegations of wrongdoing and disclaiming any liability with respect to any and all claims, considers it in its best interests to resolve Plaintiffs’ class allegations on the terms stated in the Settlement Agreement, in order to avoid further expense, inconvenience, interference with its ongoing business operations, and burdensome litigation.
