The Restaurant Law Center and its co-amici filed a brief in support of the Petitioners, arguing that the Ninth Circuit decision must be overturned as it would unconstitutionally allow a single state to impose massive costs on interstate commerce without a legitimate local public interest. Furthermore, it would unconstitutionally allow a single state to regulate commerce that occurs wholly within other states, interfering with state sovereignty and undermining interstate restaurant supply chains.
