SCI Moving Forward With Legal Challenge To California Mountain Lion Import Ban
SCI’s leadership has authorized the Litigation team to move forward with a legal challenge to California’s ban on the importation and possession of mountain lions legally hunted in other states. In response to an “Action Alert” to gauge members’ interest in this issue, over 120 members expressed strong support for such a lawsuit. The Litigation team will be contacting some of the members who responded to determine the members’ interest in providing factual statements in support of the lawsuit.
The overwhelming response of support from our members on this issue was unprecedented in SCI litigation history. Unfortunately, it will not be possible for us to use statements from each and every one of our members that contacted us in response to the Action Alert. If you responded to the original Action Alert but do not hear from the Litigation team in the next month, it does not mean that we do not need or appreciate your assistance. It means only that we have assembled all of the statements that we require at this time and that we will be keeping your information on file for potential future litigation needs. Once again, we thank all of our members who contacted us to help us with this important litigation effort.
