An appeals court has ruled in favor of Amazon in a lawsuit filed on behalf of the father of an 18-year-old Keystone High School student who died of a caffeine overdose.

On May 27, 2014, Logan Stiner, a senior at Keysone, died of a fatal dose of caffeine powder, after a friend of his purchased the powder through Amazon’s website.

After his death, Logan’s father, Dennis Stiner, filed a lawsuit against Amazon and other defendants. A Lorain County judge eventually ruled in favor of Amazon.

Stiner then filed an appeal with the 9th District Court of Appeals claiming the Lorain County court erred. The appeals court affirmed the lower court’s ruling, according to court documents.
