Joshua Turner Discusses Country-of-Origin Meat Labeling Ruling

Law360, Fortune
August 1, 2014

Joshua S. Turner, a partner in Wiley Rein's Appellate Practice, was interviewed for separate articles that appeared in Law360 and Fortune about a recent decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit that upheld a country-of-origin meat labeling requirement.  The ruling could allow the government to target businesses with increased disclosure requirements.  “Presuming that this holds, where you're going to really see a lot of activity is in trying to drill down on what the interest is that the government has to show in order to compel speech, and what is controversial and what is factual,” Mr. Turner said to Law360.  “I think there are a lot of disclosures that governments could try and make people make that would run afoul of both of those lines and would very quickly overwhelm the limited amount of space that manufacturers and retailers have to advertise their products.”  To read the Fortune article, click here.
