Florida Appeal Court Upholds $33M Judgment Against Lorillard Tobacco Co., Denying Its Request for a New Trial, Reports Parker Waichman LLP and Co-counsel
Date:9/4/2013

Bonita Springs, Florida (PRWEB) September 04, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of consumers, and its co-counsel are pleased to report that Florida’s Third District Court of Appeal has today, Sept. 4, 2013, upheld a $33 million judgment against Lorillard Tobacco Co., according to court documents.
