CTIA still plans to challenge San Francisco cellphone law

updated 11:20 pm EDT, Mon August 22, 2011

Trade group challenges radiation warnings

The CTIA is reportedly considering a fresh legal battle with the city of San Francisco over cellphone radiation warnings. The trade group has told CNET it is still not satisfied with the toned-down regulations, which require retailers to post materials addressing the risks of radiation from cellphones and recommending ways to minimize personal exposure.

The original legislation would have forced retailers to display specific absorption rates (SAR) for each handset, however the city Board of Supervisors backed down after the CTIA filed a lawsuit questioning the law's constitutionality.

"We're certainly placing [the law] under review and looking at the language of the ordinance," said CTIA vice president of public affairs John Walls. "There are still some things that we take exception to and we're looking at legal options to address those."

Despite public threats, the CTIA has yet to file a lawsuit challenging the latest requirements.
