Defended client in this class action lawsuit brought on behalf of its subscribers

Defended client in this class action lawsuit brought on behalf of its subscribers.  The plaintiffs claimed over $400 million that our client had previously recovered from the tobacco industry.  The claims of the individual plaintiffs were dismissed, and the claims of the plaintiff fully insured groups were then settled for $41 million (which included $30 million already designated for payment to the groups by the Minnesota Commerce Department).  The Court reduced plaintiffs’ request for lawyers' fees by $1.5 million following our client’s objection.
Past results are reported to provide the reader with an indication of the type of litigation we practice. They do not and should not be construed to create an expectation of result in any other case, as all cases are dependent upon their own unique fact situation and applicable law.
