Particularly in light of the Tobacco Industry’s recent acknowledgement to this Court that, as a result of the D.C. Circuit’s November 1, 2016 ruling on the relevant issue, “it is now clear that Defendant R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company is required to publish three sets of corrective statements on television – one on behalf of Brown & Williamson Tobacco Corporation, one on behalf of itself, and one on behalf of Lorillard Tobacco Company,” Docket Entry 6202, it is the Public Health Intervenors’ position that there are no outstanding issues with regard to this particular matter that this Court needs to decide.
The only remaining issues in this case are the Tobacco Companies’ most recent challenge to the preamble language, currently pending before the D.C. Circuit and scheduled for oral argument on February 14, 2017, and the point-of-sale issue pending before this Court.
