    First Amendment Challenge to NY MMA ban

    Here as a interesting article from Slate about a challenge to the NY ban on "combative sport." The plaintiffs are making the rather novel argument that martial arts are inherently artistic and thereby an expressive activity that should be protected under the First Amendment.

    Here is the article:

    Yeah, Slate was about the 27th publication to cover this but the article more than makes up for it by being the worst written one.

    For some better details you can check out this post by SAMBO Steve on the making of the suit: http://nymmanow.blogspot.com/2011/11...-suit-can.html

    And here's a link to the D'Arce Side episode where Mike Stetz, Jim Genia, and I discuss some of the ramifications of the suit. Legal talk starts about half way through: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/thedarc...the-darce-side

    Really shocked at how this story did not get any front page mention here on Bullshido. Zuffa takes NY to Federal court on Constitutional violations? This is a historic case.
