As part of a class action lawsuit against Juul Labs by Ohio and nearly three dozen other states, several area school districts are now awaiting their monetary awards. To settle the case, the electronic cigarette company agreed to pay out $438 million and stop marketing its vaping products to kids. Among the school districts in Wayne County getting money, Green Local, Norwayne, Northwestern, Rittman, Orrville and Southeast Local will all receive between $20,000 and $30,000. Wooster will get over $50,000, while the amount Triway will receive has yet to be released. The schools will get half the money this fall, with the remainder paid out over the next four years.
