First US troll lawsuit/NJoy

Eric McGovern claims that Njoy of Scottsdale, Ariz. avoids federal regulation of its cancer-causing products by stating on cartons that it is not a smoking cessation product. Yet it implies in its marketing that Njoy cigarettes help smokers quit, McGovern says in the lawsuit.

Also named as a defendant is Sottera, a parent company that merged into Njoy in July in 2012, according to the complaint.
