Public Outrage 1, Big-Ag Foolishness 0: Utah Prosecutors Drop Charges in Ag-Gag Case

Utah prosecutors announced Tuesday they’re dismissing charges against Amy Meyer, the first person to be charged under Utah’s ag-gag law since its passage in 2012. Overwhelming national attention and public outrage immediately preceded the decision to dismiss charges, which were first filed in February. Naturally prosecutors avow that THE PUBLICITY HAD NOTHING WHATSOEVER TO DO WITH IT!!! … sure, guys — whatever you say! Regardless, Utah’s first effort at ag-gag enforcement has been an embarrassing flop, guaranteed to raise public awareness about the need to defeat these ugly laws. Thanks, Utah!
