Florida Court Won’t Recertify Smokers Class

From Reuters

A Florida appeals court declined to allow smokers in the state to sue Philip Morris USA as a single class to recover the purchase price of Marlboro Lights and Ultra Lights cigarettes, Philip Morris said.

The smokers had sued Philip Morris, a unit of Altria Group Inc., to recover the amount they had spent on the cigarettes because, they said, they were deceived into thinking “light” cigarettes were safer than regular ones.
