Resources: Light- and Low-Tar Cigarettes
Reports & Studies
The 1663-page final opinion of Judge Kessler in the US government’s racketeering case against the tobacco industry in which tobacco companies were found guilty of misleading the public about the harmfulness of light and low-tar products.
The Tobacco Control Legal Consortium presents verbatim excerpts from Judge Gladys Kessler’s Findings from United States v. Philip Morris, to equip policymakers, health advocates and the public with the facts about the tobacco companies and their executives: what they knew, when they knew it, and how they continue to mislead the public and manipulate public policy.
