Illinois Supreme Court Grants Review of the Price Case Against Philip Morris USA
Sep 24 14
The Illinois Supreme Court granted review in the Price case to decide whether its 2005 dismissal of that case against Philip Morris USA (PM USA) should remain in place. In April, an intermediate state appellate court overturned a decade-old decision of the Illinois Supreme Court dismissing the Price case. The appellate court further held that, as a result of the case being reopened, the original judgment should be reinstated. That decision remains stayed while on appeal. In 2003, a Madison Circuit Court judge sitting without a jury found that PM USA had deceived Illinois smokers in purchasing Marlboro Lights and Cambridge Lights cigarettes and imposed a $10.1 billion judgment. In 2005, the Illinois Supreme Court reversed the judgment in favor of PM USA.
