Legal Efforts to Dismiss the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act
JULY 29, 2009
The defense demanded that the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA) be struck down as unconstitutional before Judge Ronald Whyte of the United States District Court, Northern District of California in San Jose. I found this on the Twin Cities Indy Media blog. On July 13th, defense attorneys for Joseph Buddenberg, Maryam Khajavi, Nathan Pope and Adriana Stumpo (the AETA 4) presented oral arguments on their motion to dismiss the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act.
SRI Denies Access to the Humane Society
