A triumvirate of activist judges rules that purchasing indelible markers is legal. Even in New York:
The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals made the finding as it upheld a decision by U.S. District Judge George B. Daniels to block the city from enforcing a law that would have prevented sales of the spray paint and markers to those between the ages of 18 and 21.
The appeals court also said it was unpersuaded by the city's argument that young artists can have friends, older relatives or an art school purchase spray paint and broad-tipped indelible markers for them or can use unregulated materials such as non-indelible markers.
It's a proud day in America when a judge deems basic art supplies "unregulated materials."
Brian Doherty was all over the marker ban back in August.
