9-0 reversal in Watson v. Philip Morris

SCOTUSblog reports:

The Supreme Court ruled unanimously on Monday that a lawsuit against a private company cannot be shifted to federal court from state court merely because the company was acting under federal agency regulations. The ruling came in Watson v. Philip Morris (05-1284).

Details will follow once the opinion is released.  For more info on the case, see our previous posts here and here--RR
