Reynolds requests stay

of Conn. legal ruling

R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. filed Tuesday a stay of motion request for a federal judgment in favor of a Connecticut woman who claimed she got laryngeal cancer from smoking Salem Kings for 25 years.

A three-judge panel for the Second Circuit Court sent the case back July 7 to the trial court for further consideration of whether to increase punitive damages. On Aug. 30, the full appeals court declined to hear the appeal.

In March 2011, the trial court determined a $28.1 million judgment against Reynolds that included $15.8 million in judgment interest. The jury found plaintiff Barbara Izzarelli was at fault for 42 percent of her illness, which reduced Reynolds' liability to $7.98 million in compensatory damages and $3.97 million in punitive damages.

Izzarelli said she began smoking Salem Kings at age 12. She had her larynx removed at 36.

Izzarelli sued under the Connecticut Products Liability Act, saying the Salem Kings cigarettes were defectively designed.
