Federal court temporarily stops DC from enforcing flushable wipes ban against K-C [From the web]




WASHINGTON, DC, December 26, 2017-

A federal judge has temporarily barred the District from enforcing part of its recently passed law requiring cautionary labels on “flushable” wet wipes, saying the city’s approach probably violates the First Amendment.

Judge James E. Boasberg of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on Friday issued a preliminary injunction that prevents officials from enforcing the law against a single wipes manufacturer, Kimberly-Clark. The law, which takes effect Jan. 1, can still be applied to other companies that were not involved in the lawsuit.
