Case Number: 2:10-cv-1852-MCE-DAD
Pro bono attorney Rachel Fazio will be arguing the case for plaintiffs In Defense of Animals, ecologist Chad Hanson, Ph.D., wild horse sanctuary founder Barbara Clarke, DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary, and wild horse enthusiast Linda Hay.
Last April, in an historic ruling, Judge Morrison C. England, Jr. refused to dismiss the case on legal technicalities, meaning that this lawsuit will be decided on the merits. Finally, the wild horses will have their day in court.
Don’t miss this unprecedented hearing – please fill the courtroom and show your support for the Twin Peaks wild horses and burros.
No recording devices, cameras, cellphones or electronic devices are allowed in the courtroom. We suggest not bringing any such devices into the courthouse. Photo identification is required to get into the courthouse.
