Intro:

However, the judge noted, "We disagree with [the company's] characterization of the Engle findings."

The judge concluded that the findings in the Engle case "established the conduct elements of Mrs. Martin's strict liability, fraudulent concealment, civil conspiracy, and negligence claims against RJR" and that "Mrs. Martin produced sufficient independent evidence to prove causation, detrimental reliance, and entitlement to punitive damages. The punitive damage award ... satisfies due process in view of the evidence of decades-long wanton conduct by RJR and because the award does not financially devastate the company."

Conclusions

Smoking prevalence among female nurses was lower than among women who were not in healthcare occupations, as expected. The lack of difference in recent quit efforts among female nurses as compared to other female smokers has not been previously reported. The link between lower level of nicotine dependence, as reflected by the longer time to first cigarette, and lower quit attempts among nurses needs further exploration.
