It's Not Over 'Til It's Over

"Our ordinance is designed to ensure that every San Franciscan who wants a Yellow Pages (volume) receives one," said Matt Dorsey, spokesman for the City Attorney Dennis Herrera. But Local Search Association, the industry's association, does not agree. "The First Amendment does not permit the city to arbitrarily restrict the distribution of Yellow Pages out of a misguided belief that directories are less valuable than other media," said Neg Norton, president of the Local Search Association. The publishers of the Yellow Pages asked the federal court to order an emergency halt to San Francisco's law restricting the distribution of the Yellow Pages. It wants to hold off until the lawsuit it filed in June is resolved. [SF Gate]
