Attorney General Goddard Confirms $38 Million Payment to Arizona

Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard announced today that Arizona will receive a $38 million payment from Phillip Morris as part of the master tobacco suit settlement reached in 1998.  “This is great news for Arizonans, especially when our legislature and governor are trying to balance the state’s budget.”  The payment, which is due tomorrow, was put in jeopardy after smokers in Illinois successfully sued Phillip Morris for $10 billion.
