The $111-Million that tobacco companies will pay to about four-dozen Missouri lawyers who helped sue them have been upheld by a state appeals court. A couple of St. Louis County taxpayers have challenged the fee arrangement worked out between Attorney General Jay Nixon and the private lawyers. The money will be paid by the tobacco companies. It will not come out of the state’s tobacco settlement payhments. The money will be paid in annual payments for 29 years.
