Class Action Lawsuit Against Marlboro Lights How to Join

Many of the class action lawsuits against the cigarette companies are going through the states. You may want to check with your state to see if there is a lawsuit pending. Each state government has a website and phone number to call for that sort of information. Then there are the law firms that handle the cases. You may want to do some research to see which law firms are handling the cases. Off hand I know that  Will Ferguson and Associates has handled some cases with Marlboro for the state of New Mexico. Sheller Ludwig and Badey have also handled cases for the residence of Missouri back in 2003.

It is really interesting how many states have been involved in some sort of class action lawsuit with the Philip Morris Company, who makes Marlboro cigarettes. You could check with one of the mentioned law firms like Sheller Ludwig and Badey to see if they know who might have a suit going in your state or if there is any case in action at the supreme court. They often cover multiple states which make sense since they have fought the beast before and won. Your not alone in this fight. In 1996 even the widow of the original Marlboro man filed suite against the company. Actor David McLean died from lung cancer after years of battling the addictive nicotine for years. He just had the hardest time trying to quit smoking and was never successful with it. David McLean was hired to be the Marlboro man on television and print adds for Philip Morris Inc. He was obligated to smoke the cigarettes and would smoke up to five packs per add in order to get the right look. From then on he received boxes of the cigarettes as gifts. At the time, no one would think that the Marlboro man would die from smoking the cigarettes that he was paid to sell to the world.

    I smoked Marlboro Lights from 1980 until 2008, when I quit smoking. I feel that false advertising by big corporations must be stopped. It is not only Phillip Morris Company who is the culprit.. there are many other companies that do false advertising of their products also..among them are the pharmaceutical companies.

    This is the third time of trying to get this message thru. I kept putting my mailing address where it said mail and I guess it would not go thru the system. I am not very good on the computer. My wife Laurie died on 12 April from throat & tongue cancer. The cancer ate thru her major neck artery and she bled out. We had met 10 years ago and she had smoked Marlboro Lights or Ultralights thinking they were safe or at least safer than regular cigarettes. She tried to quit numerous times but after a few days she would always start again. Please sign me up for the class action lawsuit against Marlboro. Floyd M. Montgomery

    My wife Judith Bilo died on March 23rd 2012. She died from lung disease that was the result from smoking cigarettes. Even though she quit smoking in the early 1990,s the disease had already started to take hold. She was first diagnosed with C.O.P.D. in 2003. The disease slowly killed over the past 9 years. She smoked Marlboro Lights until she quit. She was 59 years old when she passed. She leaves behind 6 children and 9 grandchildren.
