Ag Law in the Field


Oct 29, 2020

I am not even sure where to start with this one.  I suppose we start either with the chicken or the egg.  When criminal law attorney, Andrew Decker, had a case involving poultry that resulted in a criminal complaint, he found himself digging into the Texas Agriculture Code because his argument depended on open versus closed range law.  When I got a phone call where a domestic turkey owner was facing criminal charges--I knew just who to call.

Listen in for a couple of wild stories where some birds roamed and we ended up with a couple of cases where ag law met criminal law.
