A security guard (L) stops a protest by anti-smoking activists at the the Seoul Hight Court on February 15, 2011. An appeals court ruled in favour of the tobacco company in South Korea's first anti-smoking damages suits filed by cancer victims and relatives. The Seoul High Court, partially upholding a lower court ruling, found there was no direct evidence that the victims' cases were caused directly by cigarettes produced by KT&G. The case began in 1999 when 36 people -- cancer victims or relatives -- sued KT&G, the country's largest tobacco firm. Five of the plaintiffs have since died.
