Philip Morris Takes Over F. Supp.

Thanks to Richard Nagareda for pointing out to me "that Philip Morris has just gained the dubious distinction of monopolizing an entire advance sheet of F. Supp. 2d."  Volume 449, pages 1-1357, consists entirely of Judge Kessler's opinion in United States v. Philip Morris and Judge Weinstein's class certification opinion in Schwab v. Philip Morris.  As Professor Nagareda puts it, "an amazing history of the tobacco industry, all in one advance sheet."

Does anyone know if Judge Kessler is related to Dr. David Kessler, former commissioner of the FDA in the 1990's?

JD -- Judge Gladys Kessler and former commissioner David Kessler are not related.
