Head note

This article comments on a decision of the Italian Supreme Court (Corte di Cassazione) focused on two main different issues:

(1) a procedural issue (whether the competent court is the ordinary court or the administrative court); and

(2) a substantial issue relating to the question whether the slogan "light" on cigarettes is misleading or not and, consequently, whether the possible damages might be recovered.
