Tobacco companies ordered to admit they deceived the public11/28/2012
A federal judge has ruled that tobacco companies must publish advertisements acknowledging that they knowingly deceived people about the dangers of cigarettes. The ruling dictates that the companies must take out ads and state that a court had determined they "deliberately deceived" the public. The ads must also state that cigarettes are responsible for killing 1,200 people every day and that secondhand smoke kills nearly 3,000 people every year. The ads were first ordered in 2006 after tobacco companies were found to have violated racketeering laws. They initially fought the judgment, calling it a violation of their First Amendment rights.
