A Joplin man who says his lungs are shot because he inhaled flavorings at a microwave popcorn factory has gotten a $20-Million award from a jury. Eric Peoples says he needs a double lung transplant. His lawyer says he’s likely to live only another 20 years even if he gets one. Peoples is 32. He had sued the company that made the flavorings. 29 other people are suing the flavorings company in the class action suit. Peoples’ suit was heard first becuase he is the most severely affected. It’s the biggest lawsuit damage award in Jasper County history.
