Last month I posted about HSUS’s suit against the National Pork Board and National Pork Producers Council (HSUS Suit Over “The Other White Meat”).
Gary Baise, an attorney out of Illinois, posted on the story this week on Farm Futures:
“If you’re an activist group bent on beating your opponent, what’s your best strategy? How about taking them to court to try to quiet their opposition and relieve them of their funding sources?
On Sept. 24 the Humane Society of the United States and a pork producer in Adair County, Iowa, sued USDA Secretary Vilsack in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. Although not named in the complaint, the real defendants are the National Pork Board and the National Pork Producers Council.
HSUS’s lawsuit is an attempt to void a straight-forward contract between Pork Board and the Pork Producers, thereby depriving them of funds and silencing their right to free speech!”
