Government Relations Update: U.S. Appeals Court blocks San Francisco ordinance on soda health warnings
A U.S. Appeals court sided with the beverage industry on Tuesday, granting its request to block a San Francisco ordinance mandating health warnings for soda and other sugary drinks.The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that San Francisco's ordinance unfairly targeted one group of products. The plaintiffs, including the American Beverage Association and the California Retailers Association, were likely to succeed with their claim that the ordinance was unjustified and violated commercial speech under the First Amendment, the court ruled.
