First Resort, Inc. v. Herrera, 15-15434

In a constitutional challenge to an ordinance designed to protect indigent women facing unexpected pregnancies from the harms posed by false or misleading advertising by limited services pregnancy centers (LSPC), the district court's ruling that San Francisco's Pregnancy Information Disclosure and Protection Ordinance was constitutional and not preempted by state law is affirmed where: 1) the Ordinance is facially valid because it regulates only unprotected false or misleading commercial speech -- a category of speech afforded no constitutional protection; and 2) the Ordinance is not unconstitutionally vague.
