Food Ad Guidelines Focus of Hearing

AAF has joined the ANA in filing another amicus brief with the United States District Court supporting the First Amendment rights of commercial speech in RJR et al v. FDA. District Court Judge Richard Leon recently issued an injunction prohibiting the FDA from moving forward with a plan mandating that the top 20% of advertising and the top 50% of the front and back of cigarette packaging be taken up with a rotating series of graphic pictorial warnings. The judge said that the FDA was unlikely to prevail due to First Amendment and other concerns. The FDA has appealed the ruling.
