Goza & Honnold is filing lawsuits against e-cigarette maker JUUL Labs Inc. on behalf of school districts locally and across the country. Our lawyers are working to regain the resources schools have expended battling the national epidemic of teenage nicotine addiction.
In a 2019 study, a team with Stanford Research into the Impact of Tobacco Advertising concluded that JUUL’s marketing clearly targeted teens and young adults, many of whom did not understand the dangers of the company’s vape pens. The result has been a growing population of kids addicted to nicotine. Schools have spent significant time and money trying to control vaping on school grounds, finding much of their work has little effect on kids who simply can’t quit. Educators have told our lawyers they are committed to helping their students, and we are assisting them in the fight.
Our firm and co-counsel filed the first lawsuits of this kind in Kansas, Missouri, and New York. For media coverage on the suits, please click the links below.
