Federal appeals court rejects tobacco industry

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia today issued a victory for public health, rejecting tobacco industry’s attempts to avoid any corrective action, despite the judgment that they violated the laws of civil racketeering and deceived the American people for decades. The court rejected the tobacco companies’ argument is false, that no tools are required by the court because the 2009 federal law that provides authority for the FDA does not allow the tobacco industry in violation of racketeering laws in the future. Today’s ruling is an important step for storing the tobacco industry accountable for decades of deception and death to prevent such deception in the future.
