Last June, we blogged about the FDA's new graphic cigarette labels, one of which is pictured below. After that, in November, we discussed U.S. District Judge Richard Leon's First-Amendment-based preliminary injunction against the labels. In an opinion issued today, Judge Leon granted the industry's motion for summary judgment and finally enjoined enforcement of the FDA rule that imposes the new labels. The Blog of the Legal Times has this report on the decision.
UPDATE: The Washington Post has this front-page story.
