Abstract:     
In the past decade, public health advocates have used litigation to achieve public policy goals that have not been attainable through the political process. An important question to consider is whether the litigation brought so far has actually influenced the policy agenda. The authors conclude that the evidence from recent tobacco and gun litigation presents a decidedly mixed picture of the efficacy of litigation as a public health policy strategy.
