"11th Circuit Greenlights Smokers' Suits Against Tobacco Companies": Katheryn Hayes Tucker of The Fulton County Daily Report has an article that begins, "The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit issued a 284-page en banc opinion Thursday saying that smokers who won a class action against tobacco companies can also file individual lawsuits."

Circuit Judge William H. Pryor, Jr. wrote yesterday's majority opinion for the en banc U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. Circuit Judge Gerald Bard Tjoflat -- who at least for the time being remains exempt from the word-count limits of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure -- issued a 227-page dissenting opinion (excluding exhibits).
