Non-Smokers' Rights Association v. Taieb & Prestige Communication

Defendants’ "Club Cigare" magazine featured numerous depictions of cigars and other tobacco products as well as celebrities endorsing cigars. The Non-Smokers' Rights Association (DNF) filed suit claiming that the magazine violated France's tobacco advertising laws. The lower court found no violations, and DNF appealed. The Court of Appeals - Paris reversed the lower court's decision, imposing financial penalties on the magazine for violating the law.
