Anti-Hunting Group Announces Litigation Division

(Columbus) – The nation’s largest anti-hunting group has launched a new legal department to challenge sportsmen in the courts.

Thanks Bigun

An Animal Protection Litigation section was created in the wake of the recent merger of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and the Fund for Animals. Attorney Jonathan Lovvorn was selected to head the department. The organization intends to add four litigating attorneys by the end of the year.

“The animal rights movement sees the courts as the easiest way to realize its anti-hunting agenda,” said U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance Senior Vice President Rick Story. “Anti-hunters are in court right now to halt black bear hunting and kick sportsmen off of public lands. The move to implement an HSUS Animal Protection Litigation function so quickly and the commitment to the program’s expansion prove that it is a priority for the newly formed mega-anti-hunting rights group.”

Lovvorn has been a partner with Meyer & Glitzenstein, the Washington, D.C. law firm used by the Fund for Animals in legal battles against sportsmen. He will assume his duties as vice president on January 1, 2005.

The merger of the two anti-hunting groups was announced on November 22, 2004. It will formally occur on January 1, 2005. The new group will have as much as $98 million in annual support to derail hunting and traditional wildlife management in the United States.

After the merger, the new organization will continue to be known as the Humane Society of the United States. It has stated that the abolition of hunting and trapping will be priority issues. Bowhunting is the first form of hunting that the group has vowed to eradicate.

The U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance has begun working with bowhunting organizations, businesses and publications to organize bowhunters nationwide to prepare a defense.

The U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance protects the rights of hunters, anglers and trappers in the courts, legislatures, at the ballot, in Congress and through public education programs.

I strongly urge you all to become a member of the USSA who are fighting for our rights to continue hunting in the US. :thumbsup:

What they can't win in the legisatures or the White House, they try in the courts. Not too hard, what w/ all of the activist judges. Tell your Senators - we need strict constructionists on the federal bench. Youns know that the antis will try to get it to the federal level. The states are their laboratories, their starting places.
I'm the guy your Mother Goose warned you about.
