Supreme Court upholds private property rights

Created: 6/24/21 (Thu) | Topic: Issues

American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall commented on the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Cedar Point Nursery v. Hassid. The court ruled 6-3 to uphold private property rights.

“The American Farm Bureau appreciates the U.S. Supreme Court for reaffirming private property rights, which are foundational to our nation and critical to ensuring secure and well-managed farms. We hope this decision sends a message to state regulators that it’s simply wrong to give outsiders access to farms, where families live and work hard to safeguard their animals and harvests.”

Background

  • AFBF filed two amicus briefs to the Supreme Court, arguing that the U.S. Constitution protects farmers’ and ranchers’ private property from unconstitutional intrusion from state regulations.
  • Read the Cedar Point Nursery v. Hassid opinion.
