Opening statements are complete in the Engle-progeny tobacco trial Cohen v. RJ Reynolds. Robin Cohen's husband was a smoker who died of cancer in 1994.

Defense attorney Stephanie Parker argued that Mr. Cohen died of cancer of the pleura, not lung cancer, and therefore Cohen was not a victim of lung cancer caused by smoking.
