Supreme Court Rejects R-CALF Suit Against Beef Checkoff
USAgNet - 06/29/2022

The Supreme Court of the United States denied R-CALF's lawsuit against 13 state beef councils and the Beef Checkoff. This ruling effectively ends R-CALF's attack on the Beef Checkoff and prevents the attorneys at Public Justice, from further diverting Checkoff and beef industry resources.

"For too long we have allowed R-CALF and their attorneys to divide our industry and draw attention away from the important job of beef promotion and research. The Supreme Court's rejection of R-CALF's petition confirms the Beef Checkoff, and its overseers, are adhering to the letter and spirit of the laws that protect and guide producer investments in the program," said NCBA CEO Colin Woodall.

The National Cattlemen Beef Association intervened in the lawsuit in its early days to help defend state beef councils from R-CALF and their activist attorneys, who falsely attacked state beef councils and the cattlemen and women who volunteer their time to support the industry as Checkoff leaders. Multiple court decisions rejected these allegations and reaffirmed the work and direction of the Beef Checkoff and those who guide it.
