Supreme Court Will Not Review California’s Prop 12

The Supreme Court declined to take up an appeal by the North American Meat Institute challenging California’s Proposition 12 ballot initiative which bans the use of intensive confinement methods for egg-laying hens, pregnant pigs, and calves raised for veal, as well as the sale of products sourced from such confined animals. The decision lets a Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling upholding the measure stand.
