Big Tobacco Held Responsible

» Written by // November 19, 2009 // , ,


Today, a Broward county jury delivered a verdict against Big Tobacco that should have sent a message. When jurors in good faith hear the evidence of misconduct, fraud, and deception practiced by the tobacco industry for decades, jurors are willing to render a verdict that relates to the egregious nature of that misconduct.

Jurors today found against Big Tobacco in a verdict including over $240 million in punitive damages. These are damages intended to punish the defendant for conduct the jury must have considered to be significantly bad.

Thanks to jurors who take time from their own lives, listen to evidence and render a verdict in good faith.
