Appeals Court Upholds Tobacco Law

A Federal Appeals Court has upheld a law that requires new, bigger graphic warning labels on cigarette packs. The Associated Press reports that the ruling relates to one of two suits by tobacco companies against the Federal rules that would require them to place large images on cigarette packs, depicting health ravages of smoking. The suit that prompted today's decision was filed in Kentucky.
