NEW YORK, Jan. 4, 2019 — The Courtroom View Network has named Charlotte-based King & Spalding partner Ursula Henninger its Engle Defense Attorney of 2018. CVN’s coverage of the Engle progeny tobacco litigation involves some of the nation’s leading attorneys facing off in Florida courtrooms, with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake. Henninger earned the honor by going undefeated in a trio of high-profile trials.
The cases are among thousands that stem from a Florida class action suit that the state’s Supreme Court ultimately decertified, allowing individual plaintiffs to recover against the nation’s tobacco companies if they can prove the smokers in their cases suffered from nicotine addiction that caused a smoking-related disease.
The outlet highlighted Henninger’s “superior trial work” in the three victories representing R.J. Reynolds, going undefeated in all three Engle trials she took to verdict in 2018. More details about her 2018 trial successes can be viewed here.
