Edward (Ed) Mannino
Pennsylvanian lawyer-lobbyist hired by the combined tobacco companies as local counsel for their 1989-1990 push to change the product liability laws. He also did legal defense work for the tobacco companies.
PRELIMINARY MATERIAL ONLY
Lawyer-lobbyist with Elliott Mannino & Flaherty,
1989: Accounts of the "Pennsylvania product liability" project in Lorillard files show that Mannino cost the cigarette companies $102,302 in this year, but had a 1990 hourly fee arrangement bringing the company approx $30,000. Projections for 1991 were zero (while others were in the $1.5 million range) — so they were obviously planning to discard him.
