Appeal undemocratic and inhumane foie gras decision

As a California chef concerned with how food is produced, I believe the recent ruling by a U.S. District Judge striking down California’s ban on the sale of force fed duck liver encourages unethical business practices and intrudes on every state’s right to make laws about animal welfare.
As you know, this decision struck down a humane law that passed with bi-partisan support and gave businesses eight years to comply. Further, the ruling relies on flawed legal reasoning--as explained recently by the LA Times Editorial Board.
If you do not appeal this decision by the Feb. 6 deadline, this single judge’s mistake will have short-circuited the democratic process--leaving the millions of Californians who support humane treatment of animals with no voice, and having a negative impact nationwide on state legislation on behalf of animals, consumer protection, workers, and more.
I urge you to appeal this unjust ruling.
