From Reuters:

“Two Florida lawyers on Monday lost a U.S. Supreme Court appeal that argued the state violated their free-speech rights by disciplining them for their television advertisements featuring a pit bull dog.

“The case involved a pair of Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyers whose advertisements showed a spike-collared pit bull in their law firm’s logo and prominently displayed the firm’s telephone number: 1-800-PIT-BULL.”
