Illinois Man Drops Suit Alleging He Found Mouse in Mountain Dew


Ah, yes, Daily RFT readers. We know you've been waiting with bated breath to find out the outcome of the case of Ronald Ball vs. PepsiCo.

Ball, as you'll recall, is the Granite City man who claims he found a mouse in the bottom of his can of Mountain Dew. Ball made the discovery, btw, after taking a big ol' swig of the soft drink. Blech!

Last week Ball filed a motion to dismiss his case. At the same time he also asked the judge for permission to re-instate the lawsuit at a later date.

Presumably Ball and his attorney decided they needed to build a better mousetrap (ie. bolster their case) before taking it to trial.
