JUUL VAPING INJURIES & FRAUDULENT MARKETING

Lieff Cabraser represents multiple plaintiffs who suffered devastating lung, stroke, and other cardiovascular injuries from their use of Juul e-cigarettes. The lawsuits allege Juul Labs, Inc. manufactures and markets unsafe and inherently defective products in marked contrast to Juul’s vast, pervasive, and deceptive marketing as well as failure to warn users about Juul dangers, negligence in the manufacture, labeling, and promotion of its highly addictive products, and improperly enticing youths to consume e-cigarettes so as to build a new market of nicotine-addicted consumers. In December 2019, Lieff Cabraser was named Co-Lead Counsel for Plaintiffs in the nationwide multidistrict Juul e-cigarette fraud and injury litigation.

In September 2020, Lieff Cabraser filed a subsequent federal lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Colorado against JLI, Altria, and culpable managing and director defendants on behalf of the Boulder Valley School District for violations of Colorado law and of the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (“RICO”) as well as negligence and nuisance laws relating to the companies’ creation and youth-targeted marketing of a new nicotine delivery product to maximize profits through addiction. Lieff Cabraser also represents the State of Hawaii and the Yurok Tribe in their related actions regarding Juul e-cigarettes.
