BROWARD CIRCUIT COURT JURY ORDERS
PHILIP MORRIS USA TO PAY $300 MILLION TO EX-SMOKER

Lucinda Naugle, 61, smoked her first cigarette in 1968 when she was twenty years old because she thought they “made her look older”. Ms. Naugle claimed that Philip Morris USA (“PMUSA”), which allegedly concealed evidence of the health problems associated with smoking, is responsible for her medical problems. She never would have begun smoking if she had known nicotine was highly addictive and that cigarettes were considered by PMUSA to be a “drug delivery device” according to her attorneys.

After 25 years of heavy smoking, she was able to quit smoking with the help of the nicotine patch. She is wheelchair bound by severe emphysema and needs 24-hour oxygen.

Ms. Naugle’s lawsuit is one of the thousands of Engle Progeny cases, individual actions that emerged when the Florida Supreme Court overturned a $145 billion verdict and decertified the class in Engle v. R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. in 2006.

Mr. Johnson was retained to testify regarding two elements of damages, compensatory and punitive. read more...
