The verdict is in--California court upholds foie gras ban!
Today the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld California’s ban on the production and sale of foie gras, the cruel delicacy produced from the livers of force-fed ducks. The court held that the ban was constitutional, finding the foie gras lobby’s challenge failed to even “raise serious questions” about the law’s constitutionality, The Animal Legal Defense Fund, the Humane Society of the United States, Farm Sanctuary, and the Marin Humane Society argued as amicus curiae on behalf of the State of California, with whom the court sided.
