Anti-hunters create litigation division
U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance ^ | Dec. 3, 2004

Humane Society of the United States to challenge hunting via courts

U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance — Dec. 3, 2004

The nation's largest anti-hunting group has launched a new legal department to challenge sportsmen in the courts.

An Animal Protection Litigation section was created in the wake of the recent merger of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and the Fund for Animals. Attorney Jonathan Lovvorn was selected to head the department. The organization intends to add four litigating attorneys by the end of the year.

"The animal rights movement sees the courts as the easiest way to realize its anti-hunting agenda," said U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance Senior Vice President Rick Story. "Anti-hunters are in court right now to halt black bear hunting and kick sportsmen off of public lands. The move to implement an HSUS Animal Protection Litigation function so quickly and the commitment to the program's expansion prove that it is a priority for the newly formed mega-anti-hunting rights group."

Lovvorn has been a partner with Meyer & Glitzenstein, the Washington, D.C. law firm used by the Fund for Animals in legal battles against sportsmen. He will assume his duties as vice president on January 1, 2005.

The merger of the two anti-hunting groups was announced on November 22, 2004. It will formally occur on January 1, 2005. The new group will have as much as $98 million in annual support to derail hunting and traditional wildlife management in the United States.

After the merger, the new organization will continue to be known as the Humane Society of the United States. It has stated that the abolition of hunting and trapping will be priority issues. Bowhunting is the first form of hunting that the group has vowed to eradicate.

The U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance has begun working with bowhunting organizations, businesses and publications to organize bowhunters nationwide to prepare a defense.

Cougars have been spotted near El Camino Real, the main drag of major cities on the San Francisco peninsula. The public passed Prop. 192 mandating cougar protection. State hunters are now killing more cougars than private hunters ever did. It's only a matter of time before a kid gets killed at school.

You win the "Quiver of the day" award! Cospiracy Guy is in charge of getting everyone "up to speed" in the accuracy division. Beauty of an arrow is that it doesn't tell the whole world what your up to, unlike that of the report of a shot being fired.

lesliemink@meyerglitz.com

Generally, each semester The Firm hires between one and three law clerks to work part-time or full-time. We also hire several summer associates each summer. We have had law clerks and summer associates receive externship credit from their law school; be placed as part of a law school co-op program; or come with scholarship funding from the Equal Justice Foundation, Public Interest Law Foundation or other sources. In other cases, we pay law clerks and summer associates based on a public interest pay scale. Specific openings for which we are considering candidates at this time are indicated below.

Current Job Openings

ASSOCIATE

Meyer & Glitzenstein, a Washington, D.C. public-interest law firm, is seeking to hire an associate with at least five years of litigation experience. The firm handles a variety of public interest cases, but concentrates on issues relating to endangered species and biodiversity, wildlife and animal protection, environment and natural resources, safe energy, and open government (Freedom of Information Act, Federal Advisory Committee Act, and related statutes). While most of the firm's cases are brought in the federal courts in Washington, we also handle cases in other federal and state courts around the country. We have represented a wide variety of organizations, including Natural Resources Defense Council, the Humane Society of the United States, Defenders of Wildlife, The Fund for Animals, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Sierra Club, the Animal Legal Defense Fund, and the Center for Biological Diversity. A more complete description of our practice can be found at our Web site at http://www.meyerglitz.com.

Candidates for the associate position must have excellent legal writing, research, and oral advocacy skills. While some background in any of the firm's areas of concentration is preferred, we are primarily interested in hiring someone who does not require extensive supervision, is resourceful, innovative, and productive, and will be a strong advocate for our clients. The salary will be determined based on level of experience, and will be on a par with the salary scale of other public interest organizations in Washington. Health insurance will also be provided.

Applicants should send a cover letter, resume, writing sample, and list of references to Howard Crystal at Meyer & Glitzenstein, Suite 700, 1601 Connecticut Ave., N.W., Washington, D.C. 20009.

LAW CLERK JOB ANNOUNCEMENT FOR SPRING 2005

Presently, we are seeking two 2L or 3L Law Clerks for the spring semester to work 12-15 hours per week. In recent years, we have arranged for EJF or other public interest program funding for some Law Clerks, and others have obtained credit at their law schools for working at our Firm. For Law Clerks who do not have separate funding or credit options, we compensate Clerks on a public-interest pay scale commensurate with the nature of our practice.

Excellent research and writing skills are required. If you are interested, please send a cover letter, resume, references, and a short writing sample (appx. 5 pages) to: Howard Crystal, Meyer & Glitzenstein, 1601 Connecticut Ave., N.W., #700, Washington, DC 20009-1035.

Range is the limiting factor. I can shoot 5 arrows accurately in 15 seconds, so rate of fire isn't too bad.

A ranger I know in OK told me 30 pairs were dropped in OK and they have trackers on them.

I've heard rumors of this going on elsewhere too.

Ok, so this isn't something I can put a link in here for. So this will have to be taken with a grain of salt.

"A ranger I know in OK told me 30 pairs were dropped in OK and they have trackers on them."

step 1: kill cougar

step 2: steal tracker (wear gloves.)

step 3: duct tape to 18 wheeler bumper at nearby truck stop, drive in different direction.

Important reasons for hunting:

1)It keeps deer off the road that cause accidents which raise car insurance.
2) It keeps lime (sp?) disease, otherwise costs would raise for doctor/hospital costs.
3) It feeds families.

Every Humane representative probably had turkey for Thanksgiving, hamburger for lunch, or chicken strips for snack. It is so much easier to herd 100 cows/chicken/etc into a slaughter house and not see the killing and sit down to a meal then for one hunter to go out in the freezing cold and shoot 2 or 3 deer a year...maybe they should legislate warmer tree stands and hunting gear instead. LOL! What about the people???? :)

Now that is interesting.

I've had deer on the grill and bear stew. Never did that with chili.

Wish I had better access to fresh kill.

You miss two or three hunting seasons here in the south and the white tail deer population will be over populated by thousands. I have had several near misses already this summer from deer running across the highway. When my wife and I are out bike riding we see lots more deer than I have ever seen. Must have been a good reproduction year.
