In this exercise you are to write a short paper (1-2 pages) analyzing the verdict in the recent tobacco industry litigation as outlined in your reading material, Big Tobacco: Guilty as Charged. What was the crime committed by the Tobacco industry and does the punishment handed down by Judge Kessler fit with the crime committed? Who are the victims and should they be given more or less consideration due to their awareness of the dangers of smoking? (Please be sure to view the video from Dr. Brandt in your readings dealing with the accountability issue with respect to smokers.)
The following videos will assist you in completion of your short paper assignment this week.
