Court challenges Chicago tobacco, alcohol outdoor ad curbs

Published on .

U.S. District Court Judge Milton Shadur on Jan. 30 ordered Chicago to prove its new curbs on tobacco and alcohol outdoor boards will affect teen-age drinking and smoking. In a ruling that could eventually send the case to the U.S. Supreme Court, Judge Shadur rejected Chicago's argument that a City Council statement that the curbs would be effective was sufficient to bypass free speech guarantees.
