Citroen Automobile Society v. National Committee for Tobacco Control

Defendants, Frequelin Guy and the Citroen Automobile Society, appealed a lower court's judgment imposing a 300,000 franc fine for advertising Camel brand cigarettes on Citroen race cars, race-related clothing and billboards and disseminating images of the racecars through the media. The Court of Cassation affirmed the lower court's judgment holding that Camel's logo violated the law of July 9, 1976 prohibiting tobacco advertising in sporting events.
