"Light" tobacco class action, cont'd



Judge Jack Weinstein's doomed-on-appeal order certifying a class against the tobacco industry over its marketing of "light" cigarettes is here in all its 540-page splendor (PDF)(via Schaeffer). Jacob Sullum at Reason "Hit and Run" examines some of the weaknesses of the plaintiffs' theories. And it's safe to say that the editorialists at the New York Sun aren't planning to start a Judge Weinstein fan club either.
