BillyGoBoy.com files suit
A Freedom Of Information Act lawsuit has been filed in United States District Court by the publisher of BillyGoBoy.com, a website publication. It names the United States Department of Agriculture the defendant. BillyGoBoy.com covers the issue of Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses used in the show ring and which demonstrate the so-called big lick gait. The site has a national and international readership. The complaint asks for expedited injunctive relief due to the violation by the USDA of the site's First Amendment right under the U.S. Constitution and the Freedom of Information Act. A year ago, the USDA was sued by Animal Protection Groups when it removed all animal welfare enforcement records, including horse soring, from its website. The new lawsuit alleges the public has a right to know about the enforcement of the Horse Protection Act as administered by the USDA. The suit alleges that actions taken by the USDA have obstructed and unlawfully thwarted that access by first delaying, and then refusing to provide the information that plaintiff requested to cover a breaking news story regarding animal ruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses.
