Animals Win Big In The Courts In 2004

When future historians comb through the year 2004, they will find that The Humane Society of the United States and The Fund for Animals helped secure a series of important legal victories, from protecting gray whales in Washington State to preserving the integrity of the citizen initiative process. A string of lawsuits challenging voter-approved animal protection measures came to a close in 2004, all in the animals’ favor and victories were plentiful in the areas of wildlife and marine mammal protection.

Yet, as good as 2004 was, 2005 promises even more. The HSUS and The Fund will formally combine their advocacy programs on January 1, 2005 and will be launching a new Animal Protection Litigation section. With a staff of seven full-time lawyers, as well as numerous law clerks, administrative staff, outside counsel, and pro-bono attorneys— we will take the legal fight for animals to the next level. Located in the nation's capital, The HSUS's Animal Protection Litigation section will be the largest in-house animal protection litigation department in the country.
