Recently the Cook County Court, the attorney for Lake View Natural Dairy (LVND) and the attorney for the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) met and created a time table for arguments to be submitted in this case. LVND’s attorney, Zenas Baer, has submitted his written argument (I will post this when I obtain a copy) in support of LVND’s right to a hearing on the constitutional issues (whether LVND and the informed men and woman who associate with them have a constitutional right to be free of state intrusion).
The MDA has a month to respond and then LVND’s attorney has two weeks to respond. Another phone meeting is scheduled for September 29th between the court and the attorneys. At that time, it will be determined if an evidentiary hearing is required.
I will continue to post these documents so that we can all judge for ourselves the merits of the arguments. Again, thank you for your support (Lake View Natural Dairy Fund).
