Description
"Civil Warriors is the account of how one lawyer led the charge against the titans of the tobacco industry. Drawing on five years of eyewitness reporting, thousands of pages of internal documents, and firsthand stories of plaintiffs lawyers, jurors, and scientists, investigative journalist Dan Zegart inter-weaves intrigue with courtroom drama to produce a real-life account that reads like fiction yet is as true to life as today's headlines." "Ron Motley was a product liability lawyer when he made a deathbed pledge to his emphysema-stricken mother: He would punish those responsible for her death. Little did Motley know what it would take for him and other die-hard lawyers, scientists, and tobacco-busters to bring the renegade tobacco industry to justice. And as Motley soon discovered, it would take every bit of the stockpile of evidence he would uncover to match the mountain of legal muscle that stood between the tobacco industry and justice."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
