Partner Larry Lasoff was quoted in the LA Weekly News article “West Hollywood’s New Fur Ban Could Be a Model for the Nation. But Opponents Are Still Trying to Strike It Down.” In November 2011 the West Hollywood City Council passed a city ordinance to ban the sale of fur apparel, which will come into effect September 2013. However, Larry points out that despite the moral contentions that inspired the ordinance, “[a]t some point it will probably become a legal battle. There are a number of people itching to challenge it, and there are a number of solid arguments to challenge it."
