Californians for Humane Farms--Yes! on Prop 2, a state ballot committee sponsored by The HSUS, Farm Sanctuary, and other animal protection groups, family farmers, veterinarians, and public health professionals, filed suit in federal court to prevent the USDA and the American Egg Board (AEB) from unlawfully spending millions of federal dollars to supplement a campaign against a state ballot initiative that would prohibit cruel confinement of farm animals. The court has granted an injunction against the USDA prohibiting use of AEB funds in California until after the November election.
