Tobacco Company Faces Punitive Damages

A tobacco company has to pay some $81 million in damages for giving kids free cigarettes.  That's what a jury decided would be awarded to the son of a Boston woman who started smoking at the age of 13 after a tobacco company began trying to hook black children.  The mother died of lung cancer.  The court announced the punitive damages yesterday, a day after ruling the company should pay $71 million in compensatory damages.  The tobacco company says it will appeal the ruling.
