Man, 92, wins $1.9 million tobacco judgment in wife’s death

A Florida jury awarded a 92-year-old man $1.9 million in compensatory damages for the death of his wife, a former two-pack-a-day Marlboro smoker who started when she was 16 and died in her 70s, attorneys said Thursday. The jury of five women and one man deliberated for slightly more than a day before deciding on the amount, attorneys for both sides said.
