Injunction declined in Horse Meat Case

The seminal appellate law blog How Appealing has this post on a case involving the only remaining plant in the United States that is slaughtering horses for human consumption. The Illinois Horse Meat Act made it unlawful for any person to slaughter a horse for human consumption, and the plant sued. The district court rejected the plant's challenge, but on appeal, the Seventh Circuit issued an opinion yesterday staying the enforcement of the Horse Meat Act pending the appeal. The decision is available here.
