COURT TO RECEIVE CANADIAN BORDER LITIGANTS
OAKLAND, CA – The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit announced yesterday that the preliminary injunction appeals of both USDA and National Meat Association “shall be placed on the calendar during the week of July 11-15, 2005, in Seattle.” The three-judge panel who will hear the case will be named one week prior to the court date.
NMA is pleased that the Court recognizes that the cases are related, but separate, and that the same panel will also consider the many amicus briefs that have been filed.
National Meat Association is a non-profit trade association. Since 1946, NMA has represented meat packers and processors, equipment manufacturers and food suppliers who provide services to the meat industry. The association has members throughout the United States, as well as in Canada, Australia and Mexico.
