“It is an honor to have been selected by the Court to serve as an interim co-lead counsel in this important litigation,” said Mr. Kawamoto.

Keller Rohrback represents government entities, such as school districts and counties, that have been forced to address the widespread use of JUUL’s e-cigarette products among minors. Plaintiffs allege that JUUL targeted youth through its advertising practices, causing many to become addicted to vaping and nicotine, which in turn led to the widely-publicized public health crisis.
