No warnings allowed on advertising for soda and other sugar-sweetened drinks

Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals grants preliminary injunction stopping San Francisco ordinance requiring warnings on advertising for soda and other sugar-sweetened beverages.  The court concluded that plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed against City of San Francisco are likely to prevail on their claim that the ordinance violates First Amendment right to freedom of speech.  In reaching its decision, the court concluded that a preliminary injunction was appropriate because the required warning is not purely factual and uncontroversial.  For more information and details on the injunction.
