Don’t forget Massachusetts…they have also been served. At least 12 states have filed lawsuits directly with the Supreme Court against California and Massachusetts as a result of unconstitutional chicken regulations that are leaving industry giants like Butterball in need of a break. Apparently, the war has begun for chicken’s rights violations in the US.
A release from the Associated Press on December 18, 2017 confirms:
Thirteen states are suing Massachusetts over a voter-approved law that will ban the sale of eggs and other food products from farm animals that were confined in overly restrictive cages.
The lawsuit was filed directly with the U.S. Supreme Court last week and follows another filed earlier in the month by more than a dozen states against California, which has a similar law.
The 2016 ballot question in Massachusetts was backed by 77 percent of voters. Among other things it requires that by 2022 only cage-free eggs be sold in the state, regardless of where the eggs were produced.
The 13 states, led by Indiana, claim the Massachusetts law violates the U.S. Constitution’s commerce clause.
Democratic Attorney General Maura Healey’s office said it is reviewing the lawsuit.
Let your chickens go at once! Otherwise, the chicken community WILL come after you. #droesty
