In the Post, Y&H alum Tim Carman profiles attorney Bert Gall of the Institute for Justice in Arlington on his current mission in life: “suing the living daylights out of cities that dare to limit the free enterprise of street vendors.”

Gall’s work spans nationwide but Carman takes the opportunity to check in on the status of D.C.’s pending new vending regulations. Officials at the District’s Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs are tight-lipped about what changes can be found in the latest draft of the the new rules and members of the D.C. Food Truck Association are understandably worried.

Lawyer Gall has one piece of advice for D.C.’s rule-writers: “we would strongly advise that they not pass a proximity restriction” on how close food trucks can park to restaurants.
