U.S. Court of Appeals Dismisses Healthy Weight with Dairy Lawsuit

Jun 30, 2008

The United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit earlier this month affirmed the decision of the U.S. District Court of Virginia to dismiss the lawsuit challenging the healthy weight with dairy marketing program. The lawsuit and subsequent appeal were filed by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, an anti-meat, anti-dairy group whose campaigns and views are closely aligned with the animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. "This is another sound defeat for PCRM, a group whose views on nutrition have been repeatedly denounced by reputable science and health organizations," said Clay Detlefsen, IDFA vice president. The initial suit had been filed in June 2005 against IDFA, Dairy Management Inc., National Dairy Council and several individual companies.
