NPR's Debbie Elliott reports that a West Virginia jury has ruled that tobacco companies don't have to provide smokers with free medical tests for early detection of lung cancer and other smoking related diseases. The jury's rejection of the class action lawsuit was a big win for cigarette makers. It was the first medical monitoring case to go to trial.
