Phillip Morris and Minnesota
The Supreme Court has refused to consider a lawsuit by Philip Morris against Minnesota. Phillip Morris is claiming that Minnesota's 75 cent per pack health impact fee in in violation of a contract with the tobacco company.
The Star Tribune reported the story from the AP.
I think that is is interesting how short this story was. The Strib could have done a lot more with it. The AP reported a story that constituted only four paragraphs. Seeing as the case is about a Minnesota law, the Strib could have and should have built a much beefer article. They could have talked to state Reps. and legislators. It would have made the story much better.
