FARM-TO-CONSUMER LEGAL DEFENSE FUND et al
v. SCHAFER et al

Sep 8, 2008 ... Justia Federal Filings - District Of Columbia District Court

Plaintiffs seek to enjoin the implementation and enforcement of the National Animal Identification System because the NAIS program requires the use of electronic radio frequency identification devices (RFIDs), which violates their religious freedoms and beliefs. Plaintiffs allege that the use of a numbering system for their premises and/or an electronic numbering system for their animals constitutes some form of a "mark of the beast" and/or represents an infringement of their "dominion over cattle and all living things" in violation of their fundamental religious beliefs.
