Animal Legal Defense Fund
SACRAMENTO — Today, the Bay Area-based national nonprofit Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) and two California taxpayers filed a notice of appeal in a lawsuit against the Regents of the University of California (UC Regents) and California Exposition and State Fair (Cal Expo). Cal Expo, a state agency, collaborates to host the fair with the UC Regents, which receives millions of taxpayer dollars annually. The lawsuit alleges that the UC Regents and Cal Expo unlawfully spent taxpayer money by transporting, confining, and exhibiting pregnant and nursing pigs at the Livestock Nursery Exhibit at the California State Fair (held at the Sacramento Fairgrounds July 2013) in violation of the state anti-cruelty law.
