The Farm Service Agency is being sued by a handful of advocacy groups in a disagreement over large-scale animal agriculture operations. The lawsuit claims the FSA has delayed and overly redacted Freedom of Information Act requests. The Public Justice Foundation, Animal Legal Defense Fund, the Center for Biological Diversity, the Center for Food Safety and Food & Water Watch are behind this lawsuit. These groups are looking for financial records to determine if tax dollars are benefiting the large-scale farms at the expense of small family-based farms.
