According to Law360.com:
Red Bull GmbH agreed...to pay over $13 million to settle a proposed class action in New York federal court accusing the Austria-based beverage company and its U.S. subsidiaries of falsely advertising its energy drinks as providing more benefit to a consumer than a cup of coffee.
So if you have purchased a can of Red Bull in the last 10 years you could possible get a piece of this $13M.
