Activist Group Suing USDA for Lending Money to Large Farms
USAgNet - 02/14/2020
The Farm Service Agency has improperly withheld "thousands of pages" of information about how its farm loans are used, according to a lawsuit filed in California federal court by the Public Justice Foundation and four other groups.
POLITICO reports that the plaintiffs are seeking documents under the Freedom of Information Act on how loans have helped finance what they call "factory farm" operations.
The other groups suing are the Center for Food Safety, Food & Water Watch, Center for Biological Diversity and the Animal Legal Defense Fund.
