Group’s lawsuits aim to boost public health
Boston Globe - 04/12/2015
The suits were filed by the Center for Public Health Litigation, a small endeavor started last year by the Public Health Advocacy Institute , a nonprofit research group based at the Northeastern University School of Law.
The center’s purpose, says its founder, law professor Richard A. Daynard, “is to bring litigation that will begin to address public health problems that can’t be effectively addressed other ways.” He is not aware of any other group taking this approach.
In its first suit in early March, the center accused Star Markets and Stop & Shop of allowing children to buy lottery tickets.
