JUDGE: NO RIGHT TO DRINK MILK FROM OWN COW
PROTEST WITH NATIONAL COMPLAINT LETTER AND FAX CAMPAIGN
On September 9th, 2011 Wisconsin Judge Patrick J. Fiedler signed a court order declaring that owners of dairy cows in Wisconsin do NOT have the right to drink the milk from their own cow!
The order applies to a case between plaintiffs Nourished by Nature, LLC and its members, dairy farmers Mark and Petra Zinniker, Gayle Loiselle and Robert Karp VERSUS defendant Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP). Nourished by Nature, LLC and the Zinnikers contracted for a herd of cows wholly owned by the LLC to be boarded at Zinniker Farm. Loiselle and Karp also contracted with the Zinnikers to board their wholly owned cow. In February 2010 the plaintiffs filed suit against DATCP seeking a court ruling that their boarding contracts were legal. Last month Judge Fiedler denied plaintiffs motion and rejected their arguments that they have the fundamental right to possess, use and enjoy their property. The plaintiffs filed a Motion for Clarification which resulted in the September 9th order.
Judge Fiedler’s ruling disregards the fundamental right to life and liberty of farmers and citizens. The preamble of the Constitution declares that government was founded to secure the rights of its citizens.
The Wisconsin Judicial Commission has the power to remove a Judge from the bench and that is our goal, but we need your help!
Judge Fiedler stated that, This court is unwilling to declare that there is a fundamental right to consume the food of one’s choice without first being presented with significantly more developed arguments on both sides of the issue. He said his decision translates further that, NoPlaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to own and use a dairy cow or a dairy herd. and NoPlaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to consume the milk from their own cow.
ACTION TO TAKE
We need hundreds of formal complaints signed against this judge. If enough people fill out the form, this will force an investigation from the Judicial Commission. Marc Lovicott, a reporter from Channel 3 Madison, WI, has said that if more than 100 complaints were filed he could guarantee that he would put the story on prime time. We need to stress that this judges ruling was unconstitutional and lacked judicial professionalism.
