Widow Sibyl Coyne filed a lawsuit against Wendianne and Jeff Rook, owners of Kratom Divine alleging their company made and marketed the kratom tea that led to Patrick Coyne's death. The complaint alleges the Rooks sold kratom products with no warning labels about the risks of overdose or death; lied about the safety of kratom; and made false and deceptive statements about the medical benefits of their kratom pills, teas and products.
