On June 17, 2022, WLF urged the Supreme Court to reject California’s attempt to impose its will on the rest of its sister States. The Ninth Circuit held that California could allow pork to be sold in the State only if the pig’s mother was kept in a group pen with at least 24 square feet of space per sow. WLF’s brief explains how this de facto extraterritorial application of California law violates horizontal federalism principles. The brief also explains how it could lead to increased food prices and hunger worldwide.
