Way back on July 1, when the weather here was actually nice and pleasant, California's ban on foie gras went into effect, making the production and sale of the French delicacy illegal in California. Very promptly thereafter, a lawsuit was filed alleging, among other issues, that the law is unconstitutionally vague. As part of their suit, the plaintiffs sought a preliminary injunction to halt enforcement of the law until the case is decided. According to the Associated Press, however, that request was denied by the district court judge yesterday.
