The product liability lawsuit was filed by Monica Hassell, the wife of Antonio Hassell, in U.S. District Court in Tennessee late last month against Living Essentials, the company that manufactures 5-Hour Energy.

According to the complaint, Hassell had been drinking the shot-like concoctions to stay awake during late shifts at a warehouse.

Hassell suffered a heart attack on August 2, 2009, while playing basketball, after about a month of drinking 5-Hour Energy on a regular basis. He died about seven months later."
