Led by James Gotz and Steve Rotman, Hausfeld’s Mass Tort group actively is prosecuting individual catastrophic injury and wrongful death claims in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts against Tobacco manufacturers.  These actions, filed on behalf of lifelong smokers targeted with free cigarettes, and addicted to the nicotine, as children, seek recovery for recently diagnosed smoking-related lung cancer and COPD injuries. 

Hausfeld’s cases all are coordinated for pre-trial purposes, along with similar cases, before the Honorable Mitchell Kaplan in Boston’s Suffolk County Superior Court.  Trials are scheduled to begin in 2019.
