Federal Judge Chastises Tobacco Industry

Comments Off

Washington D.C. Federal Judge Gladys Kessler recently expressed her unfavorable opinions on the tobacco industry as a whole last week in her 1, 742 opinion which specifically included nine cigarette manufactures and two trade groups. The ruling showed the tobacco industry conspired to conceal the truth about smoking and the adverse health risks associated with it for the past 50 years. This represents just one of many cout rulings attacking the tobaco industry over the last few months. It will be interesting to see how the landscape of tobacco litigation progresses over the next year or so.
