Wong v. Claridge Casino Hotel, (N.J. 2008).

A nonsmoking dealer at the Defendant’s Baccarat and poker tables was exposed to secondhand smoke during her late-night shifts at work.  She later developed lung cancer.  A worker’s compensation judge concluded that Wong’s ten years of on-the-job exposure to secondhand smoke materially contributed to her lung cancer and awarded her 60 percent partial disability, plus lost wages for the six-moth period between her first and second lung surgeries.  The total award was $150,000.  See Schaffer, R., “Judge Says Secondhand Smoke Contributed to Claridge dealer’s Lung Cancer,” The Press of Atlantic City, February 13, 2008.
