This document was originally prepared for a case in San Diego five years ago, that we believe covers an illegal local law promulgated by the City of San Diego. If the law has not changed, we still believe the law is illegal.
Our sources even told us that the city attorney himself believed that the law was likely not legal. The attorney that was fired off the case [which was not the attorney who prepared the grid document]– took about two months to get some type of irreparable harm motion filed, and when presented to the court, lost the motion because she allowed too much time to expire. The lag of time was that attorney’s fault, and further, she also allowed erroneous accusations which could lead to anti slapp claims (and in fact did lead to such claims) because she foolishly would not remove the claims from the lawsuit when told that she should remove it.
It was very obvious that all of the activist protesting at the pet store or stores, was in violation of the Pruneyard case law in CA, but the same attorney did nothing. The pet stores were not located in big shopping malls. The attorney was local to the San Diego area and apparently tried to steer the case as if it was some typical civil case. Animal law cases are seldom if ever just a ‘simple civil case’, especially if new laws are involved. After our small group has watched over 9-10 years of bad laws pass, with no one attempting (with a united front) to actually change the course, we are now stuck with so many bad laws re animals that we will not likely get rid of most of them. The only thing that might change is this (well, HSUS got rid of Pacelle–and the eggie cases are at the United States Supreme Court..)….so……….
IF CONSUMER BUYERS REALIZED
THEY WERE BEING DECEIVED
WHEN THEY BUY THE DOGS, FOR EXAMPLE,
FROM NON PROFITS
AND RESCUES, THEY MAY NO LONGER
WANT TO BUY THE
ANIMALS FROM SUCH GROUPS.
We don’t personally believe consumers are all that smart, since they all follow Animal Planet which is nothing more than a glorified PETA HSUS junk show. Just sayin’……..
