Watson v. Philip Morris

At this link, Cornell's Legal Information Institute details the upcoming April 25th oral argument in Watson v. Philip Morris.  The question presented to the Supreme Court is:

Whether a   private actor doing no more than complying with federal regulation is   a “person acting under a federal officer” for the purpose   of 28   U.S.C. § 1442(a)(1), entitling the actor to   remove to federal court a civil action brought in state court under   state law.

Thanks to Benjamin Spencer for the heads up.  -- RR
