Issues: (1) Whether, when there is no way to tell whether a prior jury found particular facts against a party, due process permits those facts to be conclusively presumed against that party in subsequent litigation; and (2) whether strict-liability and negligence claims based on the findings by the class-action jury in Engle v. Liggett Group, Inc. are pre-empted by the many federal statutes that manifested Congress's intent that cigarettes continue to be lawfully sold in the United States.
