Nationwide Litigation Against Tobacco Secures $4 Billion

Case Study
Partner David S. Golub served as lead private counsel for the State of Connecticut in its sovereign enforcement action against the tobacco industry and participated in the nationwide litigation leading up to the national settlement that resulted in a $3.6 billion recovery for the State of Connecticut.
Connecticut’s leading role in the nationwide litigation was specifically recognized by a special panel of former attorneys general, which concluded that the contribution of Connecticut’s legal team to the national settlement was among the top five of the 57 states and other entities involved in that litigation.
As a result of that finding, the State received a special award of an additional $370 million of the national settlement proceeds, bringing the total recovery to almost $4 billion.
