Add comment on:Court Asked to Uphold California Ban on Cruelly Produced Eggs
The Humane Society
An attempt by six states to overturn a California law that requires more humane treatment of egg-laying hens and higher food safety standards will face legal opposition from The Humane Society of the United States. In papers filed with the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California, The HSUS is seeking to file a motion to dismiss a lawsuit that would overturn AB 1437, a law that stops the sale of eggs from hens confined in inhumane battery cages by the start of next year. The lawsuit was filed by Alabama, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and the governor of Iowa.
