Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
A Broward County, Florida jury delivered a verdict against tobacco company Philip Morris over the death of a woman who smoked two packs of cigarettes each day from the time she was 16 years-old until she died in her late 70's.
The jury rendered a damages verdict in favor of Barbanell for $5.34 million, but apportioned liability between defendant Philip Morris (36.5%) and the late Shirley Barbanell (67.5%).
The result was a verdict of approximately $1.9 million in favor of Leon Barbanell against the tobacco company.

Gdanski told FindLaw that his client "was very, very pleased with the verdict." The 92-year-old planned to "go home tonight and talk to his deceased wife and tell her that justice was finally served."
