Popcorn Lung Verdict

Pop We've been mentioning since 2007 (see here here here  and here) the ongoing litigation and regulation over how employees manufacturing microwave popcorn are at risk for developing a severe lung disease from diacetyl.  An early jury award is just in: a Cook County, IL jury awarded a man $30.4 million.  Here are stories in the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin (subscription required) and the Joplin Globe.
