A California jury has given a former smoker a 28 BILLION dollar award against big tobacco.
64 year old Betty Bullock sued Philip Morris for fraud and negligence.
Bullock started smoking when she was 17 and was diagnosed with lung cancer last year. The cancer has since spread to her liver.
Earlier, the jury had ordered the tobacco company to pay Bullock a total of 850-thousand dollars for economic damages and pain and suffering.
Bullock's lawyer argued that Philip Morris concealed the dangers of cigarettes with a widespread disinformation campaign that began decades ago.
A Philip Morris spokesman says the woman knew the health risks, and that she rebuffed her own daughter's pleas to quit by saying that it was her own business what she did.

His driving average for the four two rounds is a wicked 277 yards a tee shot.
