United States Fourth Circuit

ResetAA Font size: Print

US Tobacco Cooperative Inc. v. Big South Wholesale of Virginia, LLC, 17-2070

Held that the United States should be substituted as a party defendant in a lawsuit in which two defendants were tobacco industry businesspeople who had agreed to perform undercover work for the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The question before the Fourth Circuit was whether the United States should be substituted as a party defendant. The panel held that the answer was yes, and thus reversed the district court's ruling on the matter.
