CASE ENTRY

Delano Farms Co. v. California Table Grape Com.

State law from 1967 requires California’s table-grape growers, who believe their grapes are superior in quality and price to run-of-the-mill grapes, to pay for generic grape advertising. Unconstitutional compelled speech? California Supreme Court: No, it’s government speech, so the state’s constitutional protections for speech do not apply. (NB: The Ninth Circuit reached the same conclusion under the First Amendment in 2009.)
