Castrataro calls the law “flawed”“arbitrary” and “capricious”

Two of the pharmacies affected, The Medicine Shoppe and Quick Script, have hired prominent local attorney, George Castrataro, to overturn the ordinance. Castrataro has indicated he is prepared to go to court and seek an injunction to prevent implementation of the new law.
