Court of Appeal Rejects Napa Restaurant’s Attempts to Flout Foie Gras Ban
by via Animal Legal Defense Fund
SAN FRANCISCO – On March 5, the California Court of Appeal for the First Appellate District rejected the Napa restaurant La Toque’s attempt to circumvent the state’s ban on selling foie gras. La Toque had argued that a lawsuit filed by the Animal Legal Defense Fund should be dismissed because the restaurant was merely “giving away” the so-called delicacy. In its opinion issued today, the Court of Appeal roundly rejected that claim, holding that ALDF is likely to succeed in its claims that La Toque is illegally selling foie gras.
