(US-il) Legal battles shape up in lawsuit over foie gras ban
- 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.
