Tobacco Case Ruling Overturned

Plaintiffs, consisting of an estimated 1.14 million consumers of Marlboro Lights and Cambridge Lights, won $7.1 billion in compensatory damages plus an additional $3 million in punitive damages, alleging they were deceived into believing these cigarettes delivered less tar and nicotine. Philip Morris sought reversal on several grounds and the judgment was reversed.
