International Fund for Animal Welfare v. Baldrige

Citation: 14 ELR 20731
No. No. 84-5393, (D.C. Cir., 06/30/1984) Stay denied

The court refuses to grant appellants' emergency motion to enjoin a seal hunt on the Pribiolof Islands holding that appellants have failed to meet the extraordinarily high burden needed to stay an executive act involving foreign affairs. In fact, appellants have failed to meet even the ordinary burden of proof of likelihood of success on the merits. For the same reason, the court also denies appellants' alternative motion for summary reversal.

[The opinion of the district court appears at 14 ELR 20702.]

Counsel are listed at 14 ELR 20702.
