Animal Legal Defense Fund’s Reply To “Appeals Court Overturns Tiger Truck Stop Decision” 8.29.2011   Leave a comment

Here is the response from The Animal Legal Defense Fund concerning this decision (re: Appeals court overturns Tiger Truck Stop decision 8.29.2011)

“This morning, the Louisiana Court of Appeals ruled that Michael Sandlin and the Tiger Truck Stop are necessary parties to the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s lawsuit to free Tony the Tiger and ordered a new trial in the case.  In so ruling, the Court vacated the permanent injunction issued by the trial court that would have freed Tony in December.  The decision means ALDF will need to amend its complaint to add the new defendants, then re-do the litigation thus far.  While we disagree with the Court of Appeals’ ruling, this is just a minor set-back. We are confident that the trial court got the law right the first time around and will rule the same way when we go through it again with Mr. Sandlin and the Tiger Truck Stop as parties.”


FTTT Note: Please continue to support Tony and the Animal Legal Defense in their efforts to give Tony the home, care, and life he deserves. See this post:
