Today, the Supreme Court announced that its opinion in In re Tobacco Cases II (no. S129522) will be posted online tomorrow morning at 10:00 a.m. This is the UCL preemption case, not the Prop. 64 case:
IN RE TOBACCO CASES II
S129522 (D041356 – San Diego County Superior Court – 719446/JCCP No. 4042)
Argued in Los Angeles 6-06-07
This case presents the following issue: Does the Federal Cigarette Labeling and Advertising Act (15 U.S.C. § 1331 et seq.) preempt claims under the Unfair Competition Law (Bus. & Prof. Code, § 17200 et seq.) for advertising that allegedly targeted minors?
When the opinion is posted, it will be available at this link. The Court of Appeal's opinion is In re Tobacco Cases II, 123 Cal.App.4th 617 (2004), and my prior posts on the case are here, here, and here.
