In the action titled In re JUUL Labs, Inc. Marketing, Sales Practices, and Products Liability Litigation, No. 19-md-02913-WHO (N.D. Cal.), there is a class action lawsuit and settlement that could affect your rights.

The Lawsuit alleges that Plaintiffs paid more for JUUL products than they otherwise would have paid if accurate information concerning the products’ addictiveness and safety had been provided. The Lawsuit also alleges that JUUL products were unlawfully marketed to minors. The Defendants deny these allegations and assert that they did not violate any law.

The Court has not decided whether any Defendant violated any laws. This website is not an opinion by the court about whether the Plaintiffs or Defendants are right.

Eligible Class Members need to make decisions about two different parts of the case, the Settlement and the continuing court case:

  • The proposed Settlement will release claims against JUUL Labs, its officers and directors, manufacturers of JUUL products, sellers of JUUL products, and other persons and entities identified in the Settlement Agreement. If you do not opt out of (exclude yourself from) the "Settlement Class", your claims against those persons and entities will be released and you will not be able to sue them for these claims. The Settlement Class includes all individuals who purchased, in the United States, a JUUL Productfrom a retail store, online retailer, or the Juul website before December 7, 2022. Further information can be found here.
  • The lawsuit also includes claims against Altria and related companies. If you are a member of the "Court Classes" (defined here) and do not opt out, you will be bound by any result from the litigation by the Court Classes against Altria. This may be your only chance to opt out.
