Our friends at Public Justice had a recent win in Iowa involving “ag-gag” laws. “Ag-gag” laws have been passed in many states and criminalize the ability for people to go undercover and collect information showing animal abuse on farms. In 2012, Iowa passed an “ag-gag” law just a year after multiple undercover investigations revealed animal abuse at different factory farms in Iowa.
Legislators for “ag-gag” laws want the laws because they believe the evidence of what happens on these farms will outrage Americans.
The federal court for the Southern District of Iowa recently ruled “ag-gag” laws are unconstitutional in Public Justice’s case.
