(July 27, 2001) -- The U.S. Supreme Court decision last month in a tobacco advertising case is already having effects on lower courts.

This week, the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered lower courts to enjoin Utah from enforcing a law that prohibited advertising of distilled spirits, a move that will ease local restrictions on winter Olympics advertising around host Salt Lake City.

Meanwhile, a district court judge overturned New York City's attempt to ban virtually all cigarette advertising, saying the city was preempted to do so by federal law. -- Ira Teinowitz
