Judge Bars 'Light' Cigarette Ads

Article in today's Los Angeles Times -- Judge Bars 'Light' Cigarette Ads, from the Associated Press:

    A federal judge has denied a request by tobacco companies to let them keep marketing
    "light" and "low tar" cigarettes until an appeal is completed in their case.

    U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler ruled in August that the cigarette makers violated
    racketeering laws and misled the public about the health consequences of smoking.
