AMARILLO (AP) — The nation’s top quarter horse group has filed a notice of appeal to topple a ruling that requires it to begin allowing cloned animals to be added to its breeding registry.
The Amarillo-based American Quarter Horse Association filed its notice of appeal on Monday in Amarillo. It’s appealing a federal jury’s verdict last month that it violated state and federal antitrust laws by conspiring to keep cloned horses from its breeding registry.
The 280,000-member organization had barred cloned horses from the registry since 2004.
A statement issued by the group says it’ll ask the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans to stay the Panhandle jury’s verdict and U.S. District Judge Mary Lou Robinson’s ruling until the appeal is completed.
