United States Supreme Court Denies Certiorari Review of Douglas v. Philip Morris

October 7, 2013 by  
Filed under Uncategorized



In Douglas v. Philip Morris et al. the Florida Supreme Court denied the tobacco companies’ claims that the Engle findings that had been applied in the case violated the Defendants’ due process rights.  The tobacco companies appealed Douglas from the Florida Supreme Court to the United States Supreme Court asking for certiorari review.  Certiorari review has just been denied.  

This is a significant victory against the big tobacco companies who had pinned their hopes on the United States Supreme Court granting review and finding the process established by the Florida Supreme Court in Engle and applied in Douglas was unconstitutional.
