San Francisco Ballot Measure Lawsuit

SAN FRANCISCO—A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of Jewish and Muslim families in an effort to block a San Francisco ballot measure that would ban the circumcision of male children.

The suit filed Wednesday asks a San Francisco judge to remove the initiative from the November ballot. The plaintiffs argue that California law bars local governments from restricting medical procedures.
