You enter into a contract with Bad Frog Brewery, Inc., to distribute their beer. The label on their beer bottles is depicted above. You are successful in obtaining contracts with local grocery and convenience stores to carry Bad Frog beer. However, using a little known ordinance prohibiting "the display or furthering the display of products with obscene gestures in retail establishments in the county," and making violators subject to a fine of $100, Polk County issues citations to several of the grocery and convenience stores to whom you have sold Bad Frog Beer causing them to return the Bad Frog beer you sold them and rescind their contracts with you. You have also been issued citations for distributing the beer with the Bad Frog labels. You consult with a lawyer and he advises you to bring an action challenging and overturning the citations and fines issued by Polk County to the grocery and convenience stores and your company.
