Street Vendors Sue City Over Fees

You know those t-shirts, jerseys, and tomahawks that you see on the way to a Brave’s game? Well new regulations enacted by the city of Atlanta may inhibit street vendors’ ability to provide fans with this gear.

Two years ago Atlanta handed over all public-property vending to a single company, now the city wants vendors to pay as much as $20,000 to secure a space as a vendor.

Street vendors, Stanley Hambrick and Larry Miller, are filing a lawsuit against the city in an effort to protect the business of independent vendors like themselves.

The suit was filed Thursday by Hambrick and Miller under the representation of the Institute for Justice.
