Cell phone trade group sues San Francisco over cell phone law
The trade group CTIA represents Apple, Verizon, AT&T, Motorola, and Verizon is upset over a law passed in June in SF requiring any business selling a cell phone to display radiation levels emitted by a given device. The CTIA argues that the law oversteps the regulatory authority of the FCC, which does not require such disclosure. The FCC has said that all cell phones sold in the United States are safe. Some researchers say that the results are inconclusive.
