A panel of arbitrators threw out the tobacco industry’s $800 million claim against New York and ordered the companies to pay New York State more than $92 million that they had wrongfully withheld from their 2003 annual payment due under the 1998 tobacco Master Settlement Agreement. The judges rejected tobacco’s demand for a dramatic reduction in its annual payment to New York, finding the State had fully complied with its agreement obligations and was entitled to its entire payment. The decision is expected to protect the State from billions of dollars in future claims.
