U.S. Supreme Court Declines to Take Up San Francisco Healthcare Law

Back in 2008, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals held that San Francisco's Healthcare Security Ordinance was not preempted by ERISA. We posted on that here. Fast-forward (chuckle) to yesterday, when the U.S. Supreme Court refused the Golden Gate Restaurant Association's petition for review. So, looks like those pesky surcharges disclosed at the bottom of menus throughout San Francisco are here to stay.
