Commercial Speech Questions In Virginia

Those participating in last year's Beaudry Moot Court Competition are all too familiar with the issue of commercial speech. Several of the cases in the competition were related to Virginia speech restrictions and the state continues to make headlines in this area of law. Jenna Johnson at the Washington Post has a story here on whether Virginia can ban campus newspapers from running advertisements mentioning alcohol. The ACLU is assisting a suit filed by newspapers at UVA and VaTech challenging the ban. ACLU of Virginia has petitioned the Supreme Court for review after losing its case in the Fourth Circuit. Central Hudson test anyone?
