  • Florida is epicenter of fight against big tobacco

    Tampa Bay Times - 06/21/2014

    Stanley Rosenblatt, 77, and his wife, Susan, 63, filed their tobacco class-action suit in 1994. He was a prominent-personal injury lawyer. She had earned a law degree at age 21 and given birth to nine children en route to an ace appellate practice.

    Back then, tobacco companies were nearly invincible, says Northeastern University law professor Richard Daynard.

    “The notion was that you couldn’t possibly take on the tobacco companies unless you had lots of lawyers,” Daynard says. “Stan and Susan didn’t get the memo.”
