Professor Sebok's comments on "light cigarette" case

Professor Anthony Sebok, Cardozo School of Law, has published a column on the Supreme Court decision in Altria Group v. Good, the "light cigarettes" preemption case. In it, he argues that the case is very important "because the Court, by finding that there was no preemption, has given the green light to an important new litigation threat to the tobacco industry" and "because the two deeply-divided opinions produced by the Court give us hints as to how it will decide the next preemption case, Wyeth v. Levine," which may be one of the most significant cases decided by the Court this year. For previous posts on Altria go here, here and here. For short videos and articles on Wyeth v. Levine, go here.
