Below is the press release from the AG here in Indiana today regarding our lawsuit.* This has been going on since 2006 and we have spent a lot of time and money fighting it. * Last year in September we won our case in circuit court where the judge stated the DNR overstepped their jurisdiction and that they have NO jurisdiction over our privately owned animals. This case will undoubtedly determine the future of deer farming/hunting preserves in Indiana.* Recently NADEFA and IDEFA have come on board to help us preserve owners as we enter the Appellate court and then probably the Supreme Court and we are very appreciative.* We have requested help from other organizations but no luck so far.* If you have any suggestions or ability to help our cause and the game farm industry we would appreciate it.* I will keep you posted as things progress.*

class=" 10pt; ''The plaintiffs Whitetail Bluff LLC will have the opportunity to respond, and the Court of Appeals will determine whether to hear oral argument in the case and will rule at some later date.
