R CALF Leader Says COOL Opponents On Shaky Ground With Appeal

R CALF Leader Says COOL Opponents On Shaky Ground With Appeal

Nine Canadian and U.S. meat and livestock groups challenging the revised country of origin labeling law have filed their initial appeal brief. The groups were turned down an injunction request that would have stopped the regulation in its tracks. R CALF supports the COOL regulation and CEO Bill Bullard says the meat groups are just re hashing arguments that the judge originally turned down and will have a difficult time winning their appeal.

The meat groups are still arguing that the COOL rewrite is an arbitrary and capricious rule. Bullard says the Judge already disagreed with that argument in the original decision and any change in that decision is unlikely as well.

Bullard also says the meat group plaintiffs are on shaky ground by arguing the World Trade Organization which called for the COOL rewrite supercedes the U.S. Constitution, administration, and Congress and that the Judge should be bound by WTO decisions.
