Fast-food menu rule struck down

September 12, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

A judge struck down a New York City rule that required fast-food restaurants to post calorie counts on their menus, but he suggested that expanding the rule to include more restaurants could make it legal. U.S. District Judge Richard J. Holwell said he determined that the rule conflicted with federal law.

The city had targeted national fast-food chains by applying the law only to those that served standardized portion sizes and that were already making calorie information available.
