Marlboro Motorcycle Helmets

A private citizen brought a public interest case seeking to compel the relevant authorities to enforce the ban on tobacco advertising against commercial vendors of motorcycle helmets with Marlboro Cigarettes advertisements.  The court dismissed the petition when the government showed they had already issued notices to the commercial respondents regarding the illegality of their products.  The court further ordered the State Tobacco Control respondent to take further action to ensure enforcement of the law and ban the sale of helmets with Marlboro Cigarette symbols.
