Menu Labeling

How's this for trying to sneak under the radar? Late Thursday afternoon, right before the holiday weekend, the California Restaurant Association filed a lawsuit in Federal Court, hoping to invalidate a San Francisco menu labeling ordinance that would require chain restaurants to share health info on menus: "The complaint obtained by City officials today alleges that San Francisco's ordinance violates both a federal statute governing nutrition disclosure standards and the U.S. Constitution's First Amendment, by compelling speech with which its member restaurants may disagree -- arguments [City Attorney Dennis] Herrera likened to the nutritional merit of a McDonald's Chocolate Triple Thick 32 ounce shake."
