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
