AMI Disappointed With Court Injunction COOL Ruling

 

The American Meat Institute, one of the plaintiffs in the COOL court case says they’ll appeal the district Judge’s decision this week to deny the preliminary injunction request.  Mark Dopp is AMI’s Senior Vice President of regulatory affairs and general counsel.

AMI and the 8 other plaintiffs say the final COOL rule violates the U.S. Constitution by compelling speech in the form of costly and detailed labels on meat products that do not directly advance a government interest.
