It took four months and three court orders for Phillip Morris to turn over
25 boxes of papers to ABC in the cigarette maker's libel lawsuit against
the network.  The only problem was, all 1 million-odd pages were printed
in black on dark red paper, impossible to photocopy, and they emitted a
nauseating chemical odor, ABC says.  The network asked a judge last week
to sanction Phillip Morris for the condition of the documents.  Phillip
Morris is suing ABC for $10 billion over a "Day One" program that
suggested the company spikes its cigarettes with extra nicotine to hook
smokers. -- Hollywood Reporter
