A trade group representing the cell phone industry said Tuesday it will file a federal lawsuit challenging San Francisco’s new law to provide radiation information.
The suit comes the week The City’s new controversial ordinance went live and after months of debate and publicity.
The ordinance requires cell phone retailers to display information about the amount of radiation emanating from cell phones and to provide fact sheets to customers who ask for them.
The CTIA said it plans to file its suit because the ordinance is trumped by federal law and it violates the industry’s First Amendment rights.
