Tobacco Plaintiff Dies At 89

He smoked two packs a day for over 75 years. He smoked right up until his death.

His wife said, "I begged him to stop."

And, of course, it killed him.

In his lawsuit he claimed that the tobacco companies failed to warn people that smoking would shorten their lives. A jury agreed, and awarded the plaintiffs $145 billion.
