The U.S. Supreme Court chose Monday not to hear the appeal for two tobacco manufacturers related to legal rulings involving Engle progeny smokers’ lawsuits.

As a result, R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. and Philip Morris USA face a combined $825,000 in judgments to Earl Graham, husband of the late Faye Graham.

The manufacturers submitted their petition for writ of certiorari Sept. 15. Reynolds declined to comment on the ruling.
