floyd-county-health-department-QL.pngThe New Albanian Brewing Company has filed a cease and desist order and a notice of tort claim against the Floyd County Health Department for defamation and "violation of the First Amendment of the United States Constitution due to adverse action by a state actor designed to retaliate against claimants for engaging in a constitutionally protected speech activity." At issue: the health department posting a photo of its truck in front of NABC Bank Street Brewhouse with a blog post about foodborne diseases. NABC is asking for an apology. And $700,000 in compensatory damages. [NA Confidential]
