A Florida jury handed down a $23.6 billion verdict against R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. The lawsuit was filed in Pensacola, Florida, by Cynthia Robinson, the widow of a smoker who died of lung cancer in 1996. In addition to the $23.6 billion in punitive damages, the jury awarded Robinson $16.8 million in compensatory damages.
