The ban "criminalizes what are some of the most basic human iK'haviors for consumption, whic h is you buy somc'thing to eat or  drink at a later time during re^re-.ation," he said.  He said the lawsuit would be based in part on the "legal term known as preemption," which means existing state laws prohibit — or prc*empt thecity's new ban.
