The Cellular Telephone Industry Association (the CTIA) sued the City and County of San Francisco on July 23, 2010 in an attempt to overturn the City’s new ordinance requiring disclosure of the “Specific Absorption Rate” (SAR) data. The Ordinance is titled the “Cell Phone Right-to-Know Ordinance” (Ordinance No. 155-10).
So what is a SAR, anyway?
