Supreme Court Rejects Tobacco Damages
The Florida Supreme Court on Thursday rejected a $145 billion verdict, the largest ever by an American jury, against tobacco companies for injuring smokers.
The justices approved an appellate court ruling that it had been a mistake to certify a class-action lawsuit representing an estimated 300,000 to 700,000 ill Floridians that resulted in the huge jury award for punitive damages in 2000.

About time. No one forces that cigarette to your lips. Hmmm…wonder if some of our local lawyers are gonna have to move out of their big houses?
More: The FSC ruled the judgement “excessive”.
Nah. Those legal fees are paid already.
