SYDNEY--Australia's highest court will hand down next week its decision on a challenge from big tobacco companies to tough new plain-packaging laws in a judgement that will be watched around the world by other countries mulling similar proposals.

The Canberra-based High Court will make a brief decision on the court case on Wednesday and the full judgement will come at a later date, said a spokesman for British American Tobacco PLC (BAT.AU), one of a group of companies that have challenged the Tobacco Plain Packaging Act.
