Family Files Wrongful Death Suit in Vue Construction Accident
The plaintiff alleges the tobacco companies committed fraud by concealing information regarding the product's harmful effects, and also alleged the companies were negligent. There have been large-scale legal actions against Big Tobacco in the past that covered many victims. Still, the plaintiff argues that the law allows for lawsuits like this one for smoking-related injuries http://thepersonalinjurydirectory.com/blog/orange-personal-injury-attorney/ and damages, including punitive damages. The defense is challenging that assertion. The trial is expected to take three weeks total. Contact April Warren at 867-4065 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Wrongful death tobacco trial packs courthouse with potential jurors By April Warren Ocala.com September 12, 2013 5:20 PM
Something big started Monday at the Marion County courthouse. Evidence could be found in long security lines, filled parking lots and an email alert telling courthouse staffers to get to work early.
The culprit is a wrongful death jury trial: one citizen's estate versus Big Tobacco.
The children of Margaret McEniry believe an addiction to cigarettes caused her to become ill and led to pancreatic cancer, which contributed substantially, if not solely, to her death in 1995.
Plaintiff's attorney Rod Smith filed the wrongful death complaint in July 2008.
"We believe smoking did not cause her pancreatic cancer," said defense attorney Walter Cofer, who is representing defendant Philip Morris USA.
The other defendants are RJ Reynolds Tobacco Co., Lorillard Tobacco Co., Lorillard Inc., Liggett Group LLC and Vector Group Ltd. Inc.
While Senior Judge Victor Musleh will preside over the case, it will be left up to six Marion County jurors to ultimately decide the case's outcome.
But the step that must come first who will serve on that jury has swallowed a great deal of this week.
On Tuesday, 196 potential jurors arrived at the Marion County Judicial Center. That was in addition to the 308 who reported on Monday for jury selection for both the tobacco case and other trials.
The large number of potential jurors led to the tobacco trial temporarily moving to a larger first-floor courtroom to accommodate more potential jurors in the gallery.
