A Career in Law

John considered himself an “ambulance chaser” during a profiling by the St. Petersburg Times – one of his first notable achievements was in 1984, when he rushed to India after the Bhopal gas disaster in India, which caused around 500,000 people to be exposed to deadly gas and chemicals that killed between 3,700 to 16,000 people. He was the first American attorney to arrive there, and would mark the beginnings of a career defending numerous people.

He earned the nickname “Bhopal” Coale thanks to his help during the settlement in Bhopal. He also earned the name “Master of Disaster” as he started to represent victims of various disasters around the world. In 1986, he represented the victims of the Dupont Plaza Hotel fire which happened in Puerto Rico. Four years later he represented the victims of the North Carolina chicken-processing plant fire. At the time, bar associations where worried about lawyer image, but according to John, he knew that if he did a good job people would love him.

The Master of Disaster

One of the biggest achievements in Coale’s career would be when he became the principal negotiator for the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement, which ended with the five largest tobacco companies paying $10 billion annually for the indefinite future to 46 states. The settlement also set new standards for how cigarettes are marketed, and how they became banned to children, during the time that the negative effects of cigarette were being identified. The companies were said to have a deal requiring them to pay $368.5 billion over a 25 year period.

After completing the tobacco deal, he retired having earned high amounts of money from the settlement, and started to focus on politics. He is very close to former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, and supported him during his presidential campaign despite having a low chance of him becoming the Democratic nominee. He donated a lot of money to this campaign, and he has also supported political names from different parties, known to have supported both John McCain and Sarah Palin, but he is also a close friend of Hillary Clinton.

He has had his share of controversies, stating that the church of scientology was using his political influence to advance their cause, though he denied that he was doing any such thing.

Health Problems

John has had his share of health problems throughout his life. In 2013, his wife revealed that he was battling throat cancer, and said that they were lucky since they caught it at an early stage and radiation could treat it. He was diagnosed the previous year and had to undergo five surgeries to treat the cancer.

Then in 2015 he underwent open-heart surgery, which he told the media was an overhaul. He’s also made comments about his wife leaving Fox News, stating that there was a lot of tension and chaos in the network making it very difficult to work.
