Winmill rules so-called “ag-gag” unconstitutional

US District Judge B. Lynn Winmill has ruled Idaho’s so-called ag-gag rule unconstitutional.

The Animal Legal Defense Fund challenged the law, which criminalized surreptitious recordings in agricultural facilities, alleging it stifled public debate about modern agriculture and criminalized investigative journalism.

Todd Dvorak, press secretary for Attorney General Lawrence Wasden, said the office is reviewing the ruling and has no further comment at this time.
