Ohio Supreme Court Rejects Rich Cordray’s Appeal Over Smoking Ad

From the AP:

The Ohio Supreme Court has rejected the state’s argument that a cigarette company’s spread in Rolling Stone magazine violated a tobacco industry settlement.

The court ruled 4-2 Wednesday without comment to decline Attorney General Richard Cordray’s appeal of a lower court ruling that sided with R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co.

At issue was a multi-page Camel ad in Rolling Stone that ran alongside a 2007 feature story illustrated with drawings.

On a related note, I wonder if Rich Cordray pulled his office’s support for a proposal, put together by a group of liberal state attorney generals, which would require ANY movie that involves smoking should be rated “R”?
