  • Subpoenas flying in Tony Gwynn tobacco case as Mr. Padre documentary premieres

    USA Today - 01/30/2018

    “The tobacco companies are indeed infamous for their scorched-earth litigation tactics,” said Richard Daynard, a law professor at Northeastern University and tobacco industry critic who is not involved in the case.  “This is, indeed, a huge list.  They are certainly within their rights in getting medical records from his treating physicians related to his cancer, but that couldn’t possibly justify these subpoenas to all these individuals and entities.  They could also fairly explore alternative causes, but only circumstances that have been scientifically demonstrated to relate to the type of cancer he had and died from.”
