The Latest Obesity Lawsuit - Hold the Menus!

Last December, New York City passed a regulation requiring certain restaurants (mostly fast food establishments) to list calorie content on menus and menu boards by July 1st.  (NYC has an info book on the new regulation explaining the details).  (This was part of the trans-fat ban passed at the same time). 

And now, as CBS News Reports (via an AP story), the New York State Restaurant Association has sued NYC in federal court to stop the regulation from taking effect.
