A North Carolina jury on Wednesday said R.J. Reynolds Vapor Co must pay tobacco giant Altria Group Inc more than $95 million, finding e-cigarettes from RJR's top-selling Vuse line infringed three Altria patents.

Richmond, Virginia-based Altria accused rival RJR of violating patents related to vaping devices with pods for storing and heating liquid nicotine, and requested more than 5% of RJR's royalties on Vuse Alto sales.
