WASHINGTON, D.C. - Two briefs were filed regarding the American Horse Protection Association suit against the USDA during the first week of February (see relevant postings on this site for more information). On Feb. 5 the Show Horse Support Fund filed its Motion for Leave to Intervene in the case. On behalf of the USDA, the Department of Justice filed a Motion to Dismiss for Summary Judgment on Feb. 7.

WHR expects to have specific information from both briefs later today. It will be posted on this site as soon as possible.
