Association des Éleveurs de Canards et d’Oies du Québec v. Harris, No. 12-5735 (U.S. Dist. Ct., C.D. Cal., W. Div., order entered September 19, 2012). More information about the case appears in Issue 446 of this Update. According to a news source, the court will issue a formal ruling on its denial of injunctive relief at a later date. A hearing on the state’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit is scheduled for November 19. See Law360, September 20, 2012.
