In re Tobacco Cases I, D055350

In People's action against defendant, R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, seeking to enforce a consent decree entered on a master settlement agreement (MSA), trial court's order in favor of the plaintiff is affirmed where: 1) the images defendant used in an advertising campaign referred to as "Camel Farms" were cartoons within the meaning of the MSA; and 2) defendant's claim that the trial court erred on determining that it has authority to assess sanctions against it for violating MSA and the consent decree by using cartoons in its advertising need not be addressed as the court did not actually assess any sanctions against defendant.
