This just in from CDM. I just became the 186th signature. I encourage everyone to sign this petition.
I just wanted to let you know that Hartz are sueing me directly. Like you, I was outraged at Hartz about their indifference to the suffering of cats and decided to become an activist myself. I sent letters and copies of the TV news report on VHS tapes to several retail outlets (such as Publix, Petco & Target). Hartz are claiming that I have interferred with their business relationships and that I am spreading false and demafatory remarks about them and that this, in turn, has caused and is causing irreperable harm. Apparently, I am not the only individual that they have tried to sue. The reporter for WJCT told me today that they sent 4 of their top lawyers to the town where another individual tried to take Hartz to small claims court. The individual in that case ultimately lost the battle – not surprising given the strength of the legal team that Hartz unleashed.
