The Long Island kosher butchers who successfully challenged the state’s kosher law in 1996 are now asking that the revised law be thrown out as a violation of religious freedom.

In court papers filed with Court of Claims Judge Frank P. Milano in Albany, the butchers allege that the revised kosher law “usurps the religious authority” of their local kosher supervisor. In addition, they said it fails to take into account the different standards of kashrut practiced today.
