Reuters reports that a jury in federal court in Florida has awarded $30 million in compensatory damages and $80 million in punitive damages against 3M Co., in a lawsuit alleging that two Army veterans suffered hearing damages as a result of 3M’s defective combat earplugs.

The plaintiffs in this case are among nearly 300,000 veterans who have sued 3M over the earplugs.  The verdict in this case is the largest so far, topping the previous record by $22.5 million.
