NEXT LEGAL STEPS IN MEAT, LIVESTOCK PRODUCERS PROP 12 FIGHT
Agri-Pulse reports:

The Supreme Court's rejection of a petition seeking review of California's Proposition 12which sets animal housing standards for meat sold in the state, ends an effort by the North American Meat Institute to set aside the requirements. But the meat industry has another shot at legal redemption in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

The appeals court has yet to rule in a case brought by the American Farm Bureau Federation and National Pork Producers Council, which was argued in April. In that case, AFBF and NPPC specifically challenge the law's requirement that pork products cannot be sold in the state unless they come from sows that have 24 square feet of space.

Depending on the ruling from the appeals court, either side could end up seeking review in the high court. NAMI also was seeking review of a 9th Circuit decision, in this case an unpublished opinion that affirmed a district court denial of the group's request for an injunction to stop implementation of Prop 12. NAMI targeted the law's application to pork and veal products.
