Philippine Tobacco Institute v. Court of Appeals

A tobacco industry trade organization challenged the legality of an administrative order issued by an executive agency under authority delegated to the agency by Republic Act 7394.  The appellate court held, in part, that the provision of the administrative order that required placement of a legislatively mandated health warning on both the front and back panels of cigarette and cigar product packaging was validly promulgated as an exercise of authority granted to the agency by the Act.  The trade organization petitioned the Supreme Court for review of the appellate court decision.  Here, the Supreme Court dismissed the trade organization's petition on procedural grounds.
