New York v. Brown Civ.No. 88-1512, (D.N.J) 721 F.Supp 629 (Dist.N.J.), summ. judg. den; 721 F.Supp 644 (Dist. NJ),
The New York Attorney General’s Office brought a suit against New Jersey officials that challenged the constitutionality of a New Jersey regulation that prevented the sale of milk below cost. The regulation was repealed in 1990.
New York challenged a Connecticut statute requiring the registration of milk sellers. The statute had vastly different penalties for out-of-state milk sellers and New York alleged that it violated the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution
