National Pork Producers Council v. Ross

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
21-468 9th Cir. Oct 11, 2022
TBD TBD TBD OT 2022

Issues: (1) Whether allegations that a state law has dramatic economic effects largely outside of the state and requires pervasive changes to an integrated nationwide industry state a violation of the dormant commerce clause, or whether the extraterritoriality principle described in the Supreme Court’s decisions is now a dead letter; and (2) whether such allegations, concerning a law that is based solely on preferences regarding out-of-state housing of farm animals, state a claim under Pike v. Bruce Church, Inc.
