In New Hampshire, Philip Morris won a lawsuit filed against them by a man's widow by arguing that the man could have quit smoking if he wanted to.  Apparently, the judge agreed.

The only problem is, the tobacco companies sold out when they made the Big Deal. They basically admitted that they are bad people when they agreed to pay all that money without judgments, agreed to pay for ads saying how bad they are, and agreed that states have a right to sue them for selling a legal product. It almost reminds one of Smith & Wesson.
