- WILDLIFE AND
The Inland Valley Daily Bulletin’s Jim Matthews reported on a ruling by a District of Columbia court regarding the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). HSUS is facing charges under RICO statutes on racketeering, obstruction of justice, malicious prosecution and other charges for a lawsuit it brought and lost against Feld Entertainment (FEI), the parent company of Ringling Brothers Circus. District judge Emmet G. Sullivan handed down an order on July 9, 2012, that has set the table for a class action RICO lawsuit against HSUS for misrepresenting itself in its fundraising campaigns.
HSUS is one of the groups that is behind the effort to ban sport hunting across the nation, and that has forced state wildlife agencies to waste countless millions of dollars on lawsuits. Now, it is facing a lawsuit that could bankrupt it, put it out of business, and send some of its top executives to prison. For more information, read “Tables turned on Humane Society” and the court’s opinion.
