OAKLAND, Calif.: The Cotati, Calif.-based national nonprofit Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) announces the settlement of a false-advertising lawsuit against Defendant Steven Mahrt, doing business as Petaluma Farms and owner of Judy’s Family Farm Organic Eggs (“Judy’s Eggs”). The lawsuit alleges that imagery and statements used on Judy’s Eggs packaging led consumers to mistakenly believe the eggs came from hens with significant outdoor access. The lawsuit also alleges that consumers bought Judy’s Eggs because of these representations. Petaluma Farms has denied all allegations and has asserted several defenses.
