New Solicitor General invitation brief filed

The Acting Solicitor General recommends a denial in Golden Gate Restaurant Association v. County of San Francisco (08-1515).  At issue in the case is whether ERISA section 514(a) preempts a San Francisco ordinance requiring covered local employers to spend a specified amount for health care benefits for their covered employees.  All of the cert. papers in the case are available on its SCOTUSwiki page, here.
