Recap of Oral Arguments in Happy’s Elephant Rights Case

By Lauren Choplin

Today we argued for our elephant client Happy’s right to liberty before a five-judge panel of the New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, First Judicial Department. Thank you to all who joined us for the livestream!

As Liddy says, “We truly could not do this without you, so we thank you. We know if Happy could say something, she would thank you as well.”
