Tobacco Class Action Lawsuit Was Questioned Over Validity

The proposed tobacco class action lawsuit, which was filed in U.S. District Court on behalf of light-cigarette smokers, was questioned over its validity in the Court.

A group of smokers is seeking up to $200 billion in damages from the tobacco industry, saying the tobacco industry lied about the health risks of “light” and “mild” cigarettes.

The plaintiffs argued that research shows that 90 percent of light-cigarette smokers were attracted to the product by perceived health benefits. A tobacco-industry lawyer called that statistic “nonsense.”
