When it comes to suing tobacco companies for allegedly deceiving you, the answer is simple.
You should sue.
That’s the advice of a group of experts who have published a study that found that more than half of the time, you won’t be able to collect the $100 million or more that some tobacco companies are suing you over.
But the experts also warn against wasting your time with frivolous lawsuits that are not likely to end in a win for the plaintiff.
They have issued a “smoking hot” report warning that many courts are being “skewed” to favor the tobacco companies.
And, in some cases, the courts are allowing tobacco companies to pay people who are injured or killed in their lawsuits.
“If you don’t win, you are wasting your own time,” said Michael Kort, the president of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, a non-profit law firm.
The new study, published by the nonpartisan Center for Public Integrity, found that tobacco companies typically spend $300 million or less on litigation per year, even after paying millions of dollars in settlements.
But they are able to get away with it because they are so well-funded.
The study also found that when a tobacco company has a successful lawsuit, it tends to take about four years for the government to decide what it wants to do with it.
“I think it’s important to know how long litigation can take,” Kort said.
“You can get to the point where you’ve got a lot of lawsuits that go through the courts, and the settlement is probably going to be a decade or two from now.
But you can get there if you go aggressively for the case.”
What the experts call a “burden of proof”Lawyers for the tobacco industry are quick to point out that the study found that the burden of proof is much higher when tobacco companies go to court.
“It’s hard to prove that a claim is without merit.
There’s no question it’s difficult to prove a claim,” said Tom Clements, the chief counsel for the American Tobacco Institute, the industry’s lobbying group.
The researchers also found evidence that plaintiffs’ attorneys tend to argue that the tobacco company is trying to get a favorable ruling from the court.
In other words, the attorneys argue that if the tobacco plaintiffs win, the court will grant the tobacco defendants favorable treatment in exchange for settling the case.
The court will likely look to the court’s decision in the settlement for its decision.
“The courts will look to whether the court is being fair to the parties and to the industry, and that’s what we’ve seen over and over again,” Clements said.
The experts also note that many of the court decisions that result in settlements are in the interest of the tobacco settlement.
For example, the tobacco settlements are often approved by the U.S. Supreme Court, which has the power to grant favorable rulings.
But, they also point out, the Supreme Court rarely grants favorable rulings on behalf of tobacco companies because of the burdens of proof and the high costs of litigation.
The American Bar Association and other law firms, meanwhile, are trying to change that by asking the Supreme Supreme Court to consider whether the settlement offers the best deal for consumers.
The American Bar Foundation and the Center for Justice are working to have that case heard before the Supreme House of Representatives in the coming weeks.
“In the Supreme court, we’re not arguing whether or not the settlement meets the standards of the settlement, we want to understand why that is,” said Dan Wieden, an attorney with the American Bar Assn.
In other cases, tobacco companies also pay the attorney fees of their attorneys who litigate the case, and some companies pay lawyers’ fees to litigate cases.
And in some situations, the companies pay settlements to the people who lost their jobs in lawsuits.
And some cases can cost more than the tobacco money.
In one recent case, the U-S.
Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit agreed with the tobacco and law firms that tobacco was a “preferred” industry to sue, while the appeals court also noted that the amount of damages awarded was much higher than what was awarded to other industries.
The 5th circuit decision could also affect other tobacco companies who are suing the same tobacco companies, said Tom O’Brien, an adjunct professor of law at the University of Maryland.
In many cases, he said, the 5.4 percent rate of settlements for tobacco companies is the highest.
The tobacco industry’s aggressive litigiousness has led to lawsuits in the past.
But O’Malley said he believes that the pace of lawsuits has been increasing in recent years.
“For the past several years, litigation costs have gone up, not down, but litigation costs are going up and litigation is becoming more of a priority,” he said.
