The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has apparently denied the National Meat Association’s request that the entire court review a recent panel decision which lifted a preliminary injunction that prevented California from enforcing a law prohibiting slaughterhouses from taking, processing or selling nonambulatory animals. Additional details about National Meat Association v. Brown, No. 09-15483 (9th Cir. 3/31/10), appear in Issue 344 of this Update. The National Meat Association indicated in a May 18 press release that it intends to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to review the matter.
