Lawyers for the widow of a man who won a $37.5 million verdict against cigarette makers in 2002 returned to Miami-Dade Circuit Court on Thursday and asked a judge to enter final judgment in the case and order a trial on punitive damages.

But lawyers for the tobacco companies argued for further delay. Even though the Florida Supreme Court last July allowed individual smokers’ cases to proceed, the tobacco lawyers contended Yolanda Lukacs’ case can’t proceed until their appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court is completed.
