Parent Files Lawsuit Against Four Loko Maker

The maker of an alcoholic drink has found itself in the middle of a legal matter. A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against Phusion Projects.

The Chicago-based company makes the "Four Loko" alcoholic drink.

It is a malt liquor that also has caffeine, and it's what a 15-year-old drank the night he died last September.

The attorney representing the family, says the company was careless when it formulated the drink.

"This is a case about protecting our children from a product that contains a lot of alcohol and was deliberately marketed to them as an energy drink with a very special punch," attorney Jeffrey Simon said.

The family says the drink should be banned.

Last year, Phusion Projects took caffeine out of the drinks, after it came under scrutiny.
