RWJA Clients Ranked in List of Top 100 Verdicts for 2009: 14 RWJA Clients’ Work Results in Awards of $634 Million

Robert W. Johnson & Associates is proud to announce that the case “Naugle v. Philip Morris USA, Inc.”, in which RWJA provided expert witness testimony on behalf of the plaintiff, was ranked 7th in the Top 100 Verdicts of 2009, as analyzed by Verdict Search (an ALM Publication).

“Providing clear, understandable financial testimony, that enables the jury to determine a just resolution for a case, is always a challenge,” said Robert W. Johnson.  “We were proud to participate in this landmark case and to provide our assistance to the lead plaintiff’s attorney, Todd R. McPharlin, Kelley Uustal, PLC., of Fort Lauderdale, FL.”

The case resulted in an award of $300,000,000 to the plaintiff, the highest single plaintiff tobacco-industry verdict in Florida.

RWJA is also pleased to congratulate 14 of its clients, who managed cases in the Top 100 Verdicts List.  The cases represented by these firms resulted in total awards of $634,736,800.
