• STORY REMOVED: BC-US--Juul-New York Lawsuit

    By: VERENA DOBNIK, Associated Press

    NEW YORK (AP) - The Associated Press has withdrawn its story about a lawsuit brought by New York state against Juul Labs Inc. The lawsuit accuses Juul of misleading the public about potential health hazards of e-cigarettes and contributing to a vaping epidemic by touting e-cigarettes as a safer alternative to traditional cigarettes, but it does not claim the company's marketing practices contributed to 42 deaths and thousands of injuries nationwide.

    A substitute version will be sent shortly.
