Madison County Circuit Judge Dennis Ruth on Dec. 14 continued a case management conference until PepsiCo’s motion to dismiss is heard in a lawsuit claiming a mouse was found in a can of Mountain Dew.
The defendant is granted 28 days or until Jan. 11 to answer or otherwise plead the plaintiff’s second amended complaint.
Until you get to this part:
Pepsi denies [Ronald] Ball’s claims, and has moved to dismiss the case.
In support of that move, Pepsi cited expert testimony that the mouse would have dissolved in the soda had it been in the can from the time of its bottling until the day the plaintiff drank it.
Got that, Ron? At worst, you would have had a 12-ounce can of presweetened mouse juice. Very thick mouse juice. With caffeine.
