Another shameless plug for a Troutman Sanders tobacco team publication — we recently published an article in the Food and Drug Law Journal entitled “Compelled Commercial Speech:  the Food and Drug Administrationi’s Effort to Smoke Out the Tobacco Industry through Graphic Warning Labels.”  The article discusses the court decisions addressing the FDA’s mandate for cigarette packages to bear graphics depicting the health consequences of smoking, as well as possible approaches to future litigation involving the warning labels.
