Keith, the Texas-based trash hauling giant, Waste Management Incorporated, sued Virginia in June over its new anti trash laws.
A federal judge blocked Virginia's new laws from taking effect July first.
Today, the Virginia Attorney General's office argued that New York City should be part of the case, because the state argues the city has conspired to send its trash to Virginia as opposed to elsewhere in New York state.

But federal Judge James Spencer was having none of that argument.
Spencer ruled against Virginia from the bench, saying "A question keeps echoing around in my mind: Are there still some lawyers present over there at the Attorney General's office?"

And "If you all want to have a mudslinging contest with New York City, fine. But you won't do it here."

The judge's ruling also did NOT bode well for the ultimate question: The Constitutionality of the limits on out-of-state trash.
