(CNN) — The U.S. Supreme Court turned aside an appeal from tobacco companies seeking to block a federal law that further restricts the marketing, packaging and event promotion of cigarettes.
The brief order from the court Monday means key provisions of the 2009 Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act stay in place.
The case is American Snuff Co. v. U.S (12-521).
