Amicus support for PLF's Delta smelt cert petition
PLF’s cert petition in Stewart & Jasper Orchards v. Jewell, which seeks review of the Ninth Circuit’s decision upholding the Delta-smelt-inspired water cutbacks to Southern California and the San Joaquin Valley, has received significant amicus curiae support. Our thanks to the American Farm Bureau Federation, the California Farm Bureau Federation, Farm Credit West, the National Federation of Independent Business, the Cato Institute, Mountain States Legal Foundation, and the American Civil Rights Union for their briefs filed earlier this month. The government’s response to our petition is due December 3.
