Case Detail

United States Tobacco Co. v. Conwood
On January 13, 2003, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to review the largest damages award ever granted in the history of antitrust law enforcement: $1.05 billion. The decision was a setback for WLF, which filed a brief urging the Court to grant review. WLF argued that the plaintiff used "junk science" to calculate its alleged damages in this garden-variety business dispute. WLF filed its brief on behalf of four of the nation's leading experts in using economic models to calculate damages, including a Nobel laureate.
Case Status:
Review denied.
