The Save the Plastic Bag coalition says the city broke state law by not adequately studying the environmental impacts of the law. A judge in Manhattan Beach blocked that city's bag ban, after a similar suit in February.

The Palo Alto City Council knew about the Southern California lawsuit, but went ahead with the ban anyway. Council members say Palo Alto's environmental study was more complete than the one done in Manhattan Beach.
