Opponents of Kansas Ag Gag Law Compensated for Legal Expenses

07/26/2020

U.S. District Judge Kathryn Vratil awarded the plaintiffs $176,000 in legal fees in a successful challenge to the Kansas Ag Gag law.  Judge Vratil ruled the law as unconstitutional since it criminalized free speech.

 

To date no legislature has framed an AG-Gag law that complies with the Constitution and “feel-good” laws that are struck down are costly in terms of the time devoted to framing, adoption and defence in addition to compensatory costs.

It is hoped that constitutional scholars can eventually devise a legal strategy to defend farmers from intrusions and manipulated images used by activist organizations to raise funds and promote a vegan agenda.
