Altria and Philip Morris USA Reaction to DOJ Clarification Order



    NEW YORK, March 16 /CNW/ - Altria and Philip Morris USA said today that
the district court's order clarifying its earlier decision on two legal issues
is contrary to the law. However, now that proceedings in the district court
have been completed, the companies will now proceed with their appeal to the
United States Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. Because
the district court's judgment is stayed pending the appeal, there will be no
immediate operational effect from today's clarification order. The companies
look forward to presenting their arguments to the appellate court.
