Update-Rulings Regarding Cigarette Warning Labels

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, March 7, 2012

According to the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, a final ruling was issued earlier this week blocking implementation of new, graphic cigarette warning labels. "The government has already appealed Judge Leon’s first ruling to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit, and oral arguments in that case are scheduled for April 10th.  It’s also important to remember that another federal judge has upheld the warning labels requirement. The appeal of that ruling is currently pending before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.  So this ruling is by no means the final word on the warning labels. The next rulings will come from the two appellate courts, and the issue could end up before the U.S. Supreme Court.”
