Prop. 2 focus of egg farmers' lawsuit San Francisco Chronicle Copyright 2012 San Francisco Chronicle. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Published 3:27 p.m., Monday, November 19, 2012 California's egg farmers filed a lawsuit against the state late last week, arguing yet again that new standards for confining egg-laying hens under Proposition 2 are too vague to be enforced. The latest lawsuit, filed in Fresno Superior Court by the Association of California Egg Farmers, claims the organization has "exhausted all available avenues for seeking clarification" on the state initiative. The legislation requires farmers to provide hens enough room to stand up, turn around and spread their wings. "Just like consumers shop around for the best eggs, these guys are shopping around for the best judge," said Jonathan Lovvorn, chief lawyer for the Humane Society. The state attorney general's office had not yet been served with the suit, but spokeswoman Lynda Gledhill said, "We will continue to defend the law." "Prop. 2 provides a person of ordinary intelligence more than a reasonable opportunity to know what is prohibited and provides explicit and objective standards to prevent discriminatory enforcement," Walter ruled.
