D.C. Circuit: USDA can prevent company from testing meat for mad cow disease

The Legal Times Blog reports on the 2-1 split decision out of the Federal D.C. Circuit holding that the USDA had the authority to ban companies from testing their cattle for mad cow disease without approval from the government. A copy of the decision is available here. The case is headed back to the district court for a determination of whether the USDA's decision to ban the tests is arbitrary and capricious.
