Golden Gate Rest. Ass'n v. City and County of San Francisco, 558 F.3d 1000 (9th Cir. 2009)

On June 28, 2010, the Court announced that it will not grant certiorari in Golden Gate Rest. Ass'n v. City & County of San Francisco, letting stand the U.S. Court of Appeals decision that the city's ordinance is not preempted by ERISA, the federal ban on state and local regulation of employee benefit plans.
