Price v. Philip Morris, Inc.

The plaintiffs, smokers, filed a class action against Philip Morris alleging that defendant's marketing of light and low-tar and nicotine cigarettes violated certain fraud statutes.  The trial court denied defendant's motion for summary judgment and awarded plaintiffs $10.1 billion. On appeal, the Court held that the action was barred by the Consumer Fraud Act and remanded with instructions for the trial court to dismiss plaintiffs' claim.
