Addictive Substances

Juul E-Cigarette and Pods

When a number of plaintiffs sue the same defendant on the same issues, with common questions of fact, cases can be combined in what’s called multi-district litigation (MDL). That’s what’s happening in the combining of multiple cases against Juul Labs, Inc. into the multi-district case In re: Juul Labs, Inc., Marketing, Sales Practices, and Products Liability Litigation.

Juul Device and Pods

The complaint for this class action alleges that a Juul “packs a more powerful nicotine punch than traditional cigarettes because JUUL contains roughly twice the nicotine concentration as cigarettes and other vape pens.” It alleges that Juul Labs, Inc., the maker of the e-cigarettes, knew that it posed risks for users, but “continued to disseminate false, misleading and deceitful information” about its products and vaping. Juul, it says, “created an online culture and community targeted to young people, including minors, and designed to encourage JUUL use.”
