Court rejects injunction

In a unanimous decision, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit has denied plaintiffs’ request for a preliminary injunction in a lawsuit seeking to halt the U.S. country of origin labeling (COOL) program.

This ruling affirms the Sept. 11 decision by a lower court denying plaintiffs’ motion for an injunction. The Appellate Court ruling was handed down on March 28, according to a March 31 U.S. Cattlemen’s Association press release.

The U.S. Cattlemen’s Association, the National Farmers Union, the American Sheep Industry Association, and the Consumer Federation of America are joint defendant-intervenors in the lawsuit originally filed by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, American Meat Institute, Canadian Cattlemen’s Association, and six other plaintiffs on July 8, in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The plaintiffs have been seeking to prevent implementation of U.S. Department of Agriculture’s revised COOL regulations.

“The plaintiffs in this case, who seek to deny U.S. cattle producers the right to label their product and to deny consumers their right to enhanced labeling information, now have the opportunity to ask that their appeal be heard by the full Court of Appeals,” said U.S. Cattlemen’s Association (USCA) President Jon Wooster. “If plaintiffs do seek rehearing by the full court, USCA will continue to defend the revised regulations before the Court.”

Defending COOL is the group’s highest priority.
