Sinclair Collis Limited v. Lord Advocate for Scotland, et al.

A tobacco vending machine company challenged the legality of a section of a tobacco control law prohibiting tobacco vending machines. The petitioner argued that the law violates the right to free movement of goods between EU member states and infringes their right to property. The court upheld the law, concluding that the law is valid because of its legitimate public interest in preventing young people from having access to cigarettes from vending machines.
