This Supreme Court has officially denied a petition to review California’s Proposition 12, which outlines space requirements for laying hens, sows and veal. The petition which was brought forth by the North American Meat Institute, cited the law as unconstitutional based on its ability to ban the sale of out-of-state products from sources that did not adhere to its protocols. Another, separate case has been filed jointly by the American Farm Bureau Federation and the National Pork Producers Council — it is still pending. Read more details on the status of the ruling.
