Parloff on tobacco litigation



Roger Parloff has a thorough post on Altria's recent victories in tobacco litigation (updating his November 2004 article on the appeals) and the threats Altria still faces as it tries to spin off Kraft. Not mentioned: the Watson v. Philip Morris certiorari grant (Jan. 10; Jan. 13), which likely foresages a return to state court of three consumer-fraud class actions in Minnesota, Missouri, and Arkansas.
