California bans Adidas 'roo shoes,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych]
Endangered Species Act,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], which sought to support Australian efforts to control kangaroos.
"The bottom line is they've decided the California law is constitutional. As of now,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], it is illegal to sell products made of kangaroos in California," said Orly Degani,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], a lawyer for Viva! USA,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], an animal-rights group that first filed a lawsuit in 2003 challenging the sale of kangaroo-skin shoes in the state.
A lawyer for the Humane Society of the United States, which filed a "friend of the court" brief on behalf of plaintiffs Viva! USA, called the court's decision "critically important" for species other than just kangaroos -- such as grizzly bears, bald eagles and wolves, which are dependent on state protection.
"When the federal government decides not to protect a species,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], the state can still do so,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych]," said HSUS counsel Jonathan Lovvorn,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], explaining the ruling.

"Although Adidas makes some shoes using kangaroo leather,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], a common practice in our industry,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], Adidas does not make shoes from any endangered or threatened kangaroo species,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych]," said Adidas spokeswoman Andrea Corso.
The Supreme Court's decision reversed a victory for defendants Adidas and retailers Sports Chalet and Offside Soccer last year when they won their appeal of the lawsuit brought by Viva,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych]! USA,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych]. E-mail to a friend相关的主题文章:
