DIRECT ACTION EVERYWHERE V. DIESTEL TURKEY RANCH: Come support Direct Action Everywhere's lawsuit against Diestel Turkey Ranch and see our attorneys argue the case.

Please wear blue DxE T-shirts if possible and NICE pants (i.e. no jeans or shorts). Do NOT bring signs, and be prepared for court decorum.

*********What we expect the judge to hear Thursday: *********
First, this is a case management conference to address administrative matters. Second, Diestel has filed a demurrer asking the court to dismiss the suit. Diestel also filed a motion to strike portions of our complaint in order to weaken the case. Diestel also asked the court to take judicial notice that what it alleges on its labels is true. We have filed opposition to all three of those requests, and we expect the judge to hear argument on Diestel’s requests and our opposition.
That is why it would be helpful to have DxE present in the courtroom—to make point to Judge Herbert that people do care about these issues and the case should go forward. It is entirely possible that Judge Herbert will rule that he is granting the demurrer/dismissing the suit, but granting DxE leave to amend the complaint.
