The jury in Putney v. R.J. Reynolds deliberated only briefly before determining that Margot Pitney died of lung cancer, rather than thyroid cancer, as the defense had suggested.

Phase 2 of this Engle-progeny tobacco trial, to determine damages, begins tomorrow morning. CVN will continue to webcast the Putney tobacco trial live, gavel-to-gavel.
