      A little more than a year after the Chicago passed an ordinance
      banning the sale of foie gras in Chicago restaurants, the lawsuit
      filed against the city is far from resolution. But some local law
      professors cast doubt on the suit's prospects.

      The lawsuit was filed on behalf of the Illinois Restaurant Association
      in August. The lawyers representing the association suggest the law is
      unconstitutional interference in interstate commerce.

      "All of the foie gras that is served or sold in Chicago restaurants
      originates from either another state or a foreign country and is
      imported into Illinois as a result of interstate or foreign commerce
      regardless of form," they argue.
