PETA Foundation General Counsel to Speak on Legal Aspects of Undercover Investigations and Recent Successes
For Immediate Release:March 31, 2010
Contact: Robbyn Brooks 202-483-7382
Washington, D.C. -- PETA Foundation General Counsel Jeff Kerr will address Georgetown University's law school on the legal aspects of undercover investigations as well as some of the victories recently won by PETA and its attorneys.
When: Wednesday, March 31, 7:30 p.m.Where: Georgetown University Law Center, Gewirz Student Center, 12th Floor, 120 F St. N.W. (near the intersection of E and Second streets)
Offering a view of the controversial organization not often seen by the public, Kerr will center his discussion on PETA's investigation into the exceedingly cruel abuses of pigs at a plant that supplied products to Hormel. Animals at the plant were routinely beaten, kicked, and sexually abused.
"PETA's hard-won legal victories have saved countless animal lives and put animal abusers on notice," says PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. "If there is any way that we can use the law to make life better for an animal, our legal team works to find it."
Kerr earned his law degree from the University of Virginia and has been counsel to PETA since 1993. He has fought for PETA and its international affiliates' right to present the animals' side in legal cases before state courts, federal courts (including the U.S. Supreme Court), and courts on three other continents.
PETA and Georgetown University's Student Animal Legal Defense Fund teamed up to make this event possible.
Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
