Court Overturns US Commerce Department's Weakening of 'Dolphin Safe' Label

"Federal Judge Thelton Henderson, in the case Earth Island Institute v. Secretary of Commerce Donald Evans, noted that the US Commerce Department's weakening of the "Dolphin-safe" label on tuna cans illegally ignored scientific evidence and must be overturned. He ordered the issuance of a new rule prohibiting the use of a "Dolphin-safe" label on any tuna products caught by netting dolphins." - excerpt from the article at http://www.enn.com/direct/display-release-m.asp?objid=%7C%7CD1D1366D000000FE4998DC6C00A94036
