Established in 2000 in FL - Flight Attendant Medical Research Institute (FAMRI) was established as a result of a Class Action suit brought on behalf of non-smoking flight attendants in October 1991 in Dade County Circuit Court (Miami) against the tobacco industry. The suit sought damages for diseases and deaths caused to flight attendants by exposure to second hand tobacco smoke in airline cabins. The settlement included the establishment of a not-for-profit medical research foundation with funding by the tobacco industry of $300 million
