Frantz Law Group Announces Four Major Settlements With JUUL Labs, Inc.

Frantz Law Group lawyers, William Shinoff and James P. Frantz, are pleased to announce four separate settlements with JUUL Labs, Inc. and its officers and directors. Together, these settlements will help mitigate the public health crisis in this country caused by youth e-cigarette vaping.

The settlements follow three-plus years of hard-fought litigation in both state and federal court. Mr. Shinoff and Mr. Frantz believe that resolving the litigation against JUUL Labs is in the best interests of all plaintiffs.

The settlements resolve the personal injury, consumer class action, government entity, and tribal cases. The personal injury settlement will provide meaningful compensation to students suffering from nicotine addiction and other injuries. The consumer class action settlement will compensate consumers who purchased JUUL products. The governmental entity settlement will provide financial resources to school districts, cities, and counties to abate youth nicotine addiction in their communities. The tribal settlement will provide similar much-needed funding for Native American tribes.

The settlements do not release claims against Altria Group, Inc., or related companies that are also defendants in the federal and state litigation. Frantz Law Group is committed to continuing this litigation against Altria and related defendants to hold all wrongdoers accountable for their alleged misconduct.

In September 2019, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned that e-cigarette use or vaping was likely a significant contributor to serious lung injuries and illnesses.

Most people who have experienced side effects from using a JUUL have had breathing complications, unexplained seizures, strokes, and signs of nicotine poisoning. Others have experienced more serious consequences, including heart attacks, respiratory failure, popcorn lung, and death.

Research data collected by the CDC has shown so far that:

After conducting initial research into these cases, the CDC has recommended that everyone in the country immediately stop all use of JUULs and e-cigarettes. At this time, it is not known exactly what type of JUUL is the most dangerous but vape devices that can use THC-laced liquids are leading suspects. What is known is that all 500+ recorded cases have the common thread of the patient being a regular JUUL or vape user.


What most people who use JUULs did not know is just how dangerous vaping is to their health. Why would they suspect it, though, when JUUL intentionally took steps to hide their product’s dangers? For as long as JUUL has been popular, the company has been advertising them as a “safer alternative” to cigarettes. There are even numerous reports that JUUL told its representatives to tell would-be buyers that JUULing is “totally safe.”

In light of recent evidence and further research, it is clear that using a JUUL can be just as dangerous as smoking a cigarette. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently lambasted JUUL for its false advertisement methods.

According to the FDA, JUUL possesses no scientific evidence that suggests using a vape device is any safer than a cigarette. In other words, they completely knowingly participated in false advertising and misleading marketing methods.


From the beginning, JUUL has been trying to target youths with their advertisements. Early campaigns from the company show likely teens using the USB-drive-shaped vape device and appearing “cool” because of it, harkening back to the Joe Camel days of cigarettes.

One Stanford University study even determined that JUUL’s ads were “remarkably similar” to cigarette company ads, right down to color schemes. To make matters worse and perhaps more obvious, JUUL attempted to hook teens by selling flavors that would attract them.

Examples of popular JUUL “juice pod” flavors that appeal to children and teens are:

There is no conclusive marketing research that suggests adults requested or prefer “fun-flavored” JUUL products. Instead, this marketing tactic mirrors candy and soda companies that create new, exciting flavors for the sole purpose of trying to get the young and influential to try them.


Have you been diagnosed with popcorn lung or permanent respiratory and pulmonary injury after using JUUL products? It is time to set things right and bring a legal fight to JUUL with the help of our California vape lawsuit attorneys.

We are not afraid to go head-to-head with corporations, insurance companies, and other defendants that do everything they can to stop people in need from being fairly compensated. We fight as if we were representing ourselves!
