Tobacco racketeers lied

U.S. appeals court finds tobacco companies lied | U.S. | Reuters

Merchants of death apparently didn't care whether their customers lived or died.

US Appeals court says ""Defendants knew of their falsity at the time and made the statements with the intent to deceive," said the 92-page ruling. "Thus, we are not dealing with accidental falsehoods, or sincere attempts to persuade; Defendants' liability rests on deceits perpetrated with knowledge of their falsity.""
