As Cafes Served Kava Sue NYC and Mayor Adams Bench Trial Looms in SDNY

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 22 – New York City and Mayor Eric Adams have been sued for their crackdown on kava, which plaintiffs describe as a food particularly popular with Pacific Islanders that is often mixed with water to consume.  

NYC views is as a food additive and has suspended and denied licenses.

 On March 22 a City lawyer and plaintiffs, owner of kava cafes, faced over before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Valerie E. Caproni. Inner City Press was there, as Judge Caproni addressed six civil cases in half an hour.  

A bench trial is looming; the City's lawyer tried to hand in some administrative decisions but Judge Caproni rightfully said to do it by letter, into the public docket.   (Judge Caproni asked Inner City Press why it was present for these civil not criminal cases. A whirlwind of justice was and is the answer - and impressive at that).

This case is Kavasutra 6th Street, Inc. et al v. Adams, et al., 23-cv-6359 (Caproni)
