Not content with the record-shattering $246 billion dollar tobacco settlement and immense winnings in asbestos suits, they have taken aim against HMOs, gun makers, lead paint manufacturers, and many other companies in search of large settlements. Soon they will be going after targets such as fast food chains, makers of video games, liquor distributors, and gambling operators.
