Eleven Health & Consumer Groups Urge Federal Court to Reject Tobacco Companies' Lawsuit Against FDA Tobacco Regulation Law
Date:9/30/2009

d claims misled millions of tobacco users and were responsible for millions of preventable diseases and premature deaths."

"Based on the industry's history of misrepresentations ... Congress expressly found that the only way to effectively protect the public from the dangers of unsubstantiated reduced-risk claims is to create a system of pre-market review, to ensure that the evidence to support such claims is verifiable. On this motion for a preliminary injunction, the Tobacco Companies' First Amendment challenge fails on the basis of this lengthy history of industry deceit and the tragic public health consequences that resulted from the industry's purposely misleading marketing," the brief argues.

The brief was filed today in the United States District Court for the Western District of Kentucky, where the tobacco companies filed their lawsuit. It was filed on behalf of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, American Cancer Society, American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, American Heart Association, American Legacy Foundation, American Lung Association, American Medical Association, American Public Health Association, Kentucky Medical Association, Oncology Nursing Society and Public Citizen.

The groups are represented by Allison M. Zieve and Gregory A. Beck of Public Citizen, Washington D.C., and Jennifer A. Moore of Grossman and Moore, Louisville, Kentucky.
