Twenty lawyers will lead nearly 100 lawsuits filed in California state courts against electronic cigarette maker Juul Labs.

In a Tuesday order, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ann Jones appointed Paul Kiesel, of Kiesel Law in Beverly Hills, California, and Mark Robinson, of Robinson Calcagnie in Newport Beach, California, as co-leads for the “private plaintiffs,” or individuals with health claims in lawsuits coordinated in a Judicial Council Coordinated Proceeding, California’s equivalent to multidistrict litigation. She also appointed two lawyers to represent public entities such as school districts: John Fiske, a San Diego shareholder at Baron & Budd, and Rahul Ravipudi, a partner at Los Angeles-based Panish Shea & Boyle, which has filed lawsuits on behalf of the Los Angeles Unified School District and the San Diego Unified School District.
