FEATURED STORY: CEI Asks High Court to Hear Tobacco Case
This week, CEI petitioned for a Supreme Court review of our lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the 1998 Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement. CEI attorneys argue that the $200 billion agreement between major tobacco companies and state attorneys general violates the Compact Clause of the Constitution. Washington Examiner Senior Columnist (and former Warren Brookes fellow) Tim Carney recently reported on the case. For more on CEI's cert petition and the history of the case, see here and here.
