California's Attorney General's to Appeal Lift on Foie Gras Ban
We sort of knew this was going to happen: California Attorney General Kamala Harris will be appealing the strike down of the foie gras ban. Her office filed papers with the Ninth Circuit Court of appeal earlier this week stating their intention to challenge the January decision that re-legalized foie gras in California (It's currently legal to import but illegal to produce in the state).
California restaurants can continue to serve foie as the appeal goes through the courts as no stay has been requested.
No date has been scheduled for the appeal.
Until then, you can watch this video that BuzzFeed put out yesterday of a bunch of Californians trying foie for the first time. Who else is serving them but Playground's Jason Quinn.
