New lawsuit filed arguing injuries caused by "vaping"
An 18-year-old from Illinois has filed a product liability lawsuit against the makers of JUUL (a "vaping" device) arguing that the side effects of vaping caused a respiratory injury, which has left the teen with the lungs of a 70 year old man. This appears to be one of the first lawsuits filed claiming injuries caused by vaping. AboutLawusuits has a little more information here.
