The Fort Mill School District is receiving more than $300 and $80,000 thanks to a class action lawsuit.
The board approved the recommendation to enter into the settlement with Juul Labs. Leaders say the district believed it was important to join the other roughly 1400 schools across the nation in the lawsuit because of the impacts the marketing of the Juul products has had on teens’ health and discipline issues in the classroom. According to their website Juul Labs says they are on a mission to transition adult smokers away from cigarettes and combat underage usage of products. The total settlement for all the districts totals $555 million.
