A Historic Decision 

In a landmark decision, a Suffolk County jury awarded a staggering $200 million in damages, and a Middlesex County jury awarded $1 billion in damages to the families of deceased smokers who tragically lost their battle with lung cancer. These verdicts against R.J. Reynolds and Philip Morris, tobacco industry titans, mark a significant shift in the Massachusetts legal landscape as their local courts scrutinize the companies' historical marketing and deceptive tactics.
