All the allegations against the Coca-Cola company were dismissed for lack of subject matter jurisdiction and evidence.
In March 2003, Federal Judge Jose E. Martinez dismissed the ACTC, TVPV, and RICO claims against Coca-Cola USA and Coca-Cola Colombia. He allowed the case to go forward against two Coca-Cola bottlers, Bebidas y Alimentos and Panamerican Beverages, but not against Coke itself (Refer page no: 14 in Web Archive). The plaintiffs did not claim an adequately close relationship between the Colombian Government and Coca-Cola's alleged involvement in the violations, so the court held that plaintiffs' claims did not suffice to allege violations of other international human rights.
Following the dismissal of the case, on April 16, 2003, Sinaltrainal union members launched the website killercoke.org, which called for the boycott of Coca-Cola.
On Aug. 11, 2009, the United States Court of Appeals gave its verdict affirming the District Court's ruling. Further, it dismissed the ACTC and TVPV claims, citing a lack of evidence to link the paramilitaries' actions to the Colombian government and Coca-Cola.
