venue By PEGGY RKAC Associated Press Writer AUSTIN AP The tobacco industry has formally denied allega tions in Texas billion federal law suit against it and asked that racke teering charges be thrown out In its response Monday to a law suit by the state the industry also urged die case be moved from Texarkana to Travis County This lawsuit is nothing more than an unwarranted political attack on a legal industry that has always operat ed in a legal fashion in the state of Austin lawyer Jack Maroney said in the filing in district court in Texarkana In the lawsuit state Attorney Gen eral Dan Morales is seeking reim bursement of Medicaid money spent on treating smokingrelated illnesses He alleges the tobacco industry vio lated racketeering wire fraud con spiracy antitrust and public nuisance laws The tobacco industry contended Monday al injuries such as medical treatment payments but only business erty damages Factual details required to sup port the RICO charges cant be pro vided by Morales Morales has an illegal contin gency feeagreement with lawyers helping in the case who include some of his campaign con tributors In the arrangement if the state wins the outside lawyers would get part of the federal share of recovered Medic aid money A tobacco industry lawyer has said the law requires funds that are recovered to go back into the Med icaid program lacks the authority to file the case in the way he did The state of Texas which taxes tobacco has profited from the prod ucts legal sale and distribution case should be tried in Travis County because thats where state agency documents and tax records are located The tobacco industry said the case will require reference to hundreds of Tl FCWC TUNOtfLHOMl nipt charges should be dismissed because RICO doesnt cover expenditures to remedy person l that be heard in a federal court in Central Maroney said HOUSTON say it is unlikely that serial killer Coral Eugene Watts will be granted parole when he comes up for review but a victims rights leader says just the pos sibility is another reason to abolish the states mandatory release law Watts who has been in prison since 1982 is scheduled for release in 2004 In 1982 he confessed to killing 13 women 12 in Texas and one in Michi gan in exchange for a burglary con viction and a 60year prison term Some think Watts may be responsi ble for as many as 100 slayings in var ious Watts agreed to give the Harris County District Attorneys Office details of the killing in exchange for the burglary conviction and sentence Andy Kahan head of Houstons Victims Assistance Office said Mon day that each time Watts comes up for parole it serves as a reminder of what will happen if the mandatory release laws are not changed Southern Baptists
