Someone commented on an earlier post that the jury found for R.J. Reynolds in the wrongful death case in the Western District of Washington this week. Sure enough, but the news coverage has been sparse:
- The Atlanta Journal-Constitution had two sentences in its "Daily Briefing" column.
- A North Carolina business journal had just a little more, relying on a Reynolds press release: Reynolds wins lawsuit over smoker's health, The Business Journal of the Greater Triad Area, May 16, 2006.
- R.J. Reynolds press release.
- Last week (May 12), the Andrews Tobacco Industry Litigation Reporter had a short piece saying the trial had begun.
