    If the facts prove he was lying, the company should counter-sue.

    Before you judge Pepsi too harshly, know that this claim of finding a mouse inside a can comes up much too frequently. One guy claimed emotional distress as he imagined that he had killed Mickey Mouse! In the past the company settled. I guess it has now reached the end of its tolerance.
