A New York federal court has reportedly approved an agreement between Red Bull GmbH and a class of consumers, settling allegations that Red Bull falsely advertised its product as providing more benefit than coffee provides. Careathers v. Red Bull N. Am. Inc., No. 13-0369 (S.D.N.Y., order entered May 1, 2015); Wolf v. Red Bull GmbH, No. 13-8008 (S.D.N.Y., order entered May 1, 2015). The agreement allots $13 million to the 2 million claimants, of whom 60 percent will each receive $4.23 and 40 percent will each receive a four-pack of Red Bull energy drinks. The court cut the fees for plaintiffs’ counsel down to about $3.4 million, or about $1.4 million less than they requested; the attorney’s fees and class award were not linked, and the court apparently indicated that it would have preferred to lower the attorney’s fees amount to increase the total consumer amount to accommodate the large number of claimants who joined the class after the settlement was proposed.
