Sea Shepherd :: ICR’s injunction is denied in U.S. District Court


ICR’s injunction is denied in U.S. District Court

It is a victory for Sea Shepherd, for environmentalists; It’s a victory for the whales.

-Charles Moure, Harris & Moure Law Firm

Steve Irwin and Yushin Maru 3February 16 was a successful day in court for Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. In Seattle the Institute for Cetacean Research (ICR) presented their preliminary injunction in the case of the ICR vs. Sea Shepherd.

In Seattle, Sea Shepherd’s legal team, Harris and Moure, presented an outstanding defense against the ICR’s attempt to halt Sea Shepherd’s activities in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary. Judge Richard A. Jones denied the whalers’ motion for a preliminary injunction meaning Sea Shepherd has legal authority to continue anti-whaling activities in the Southern Ocean. Judge Jones made it clear that he would look at the reason why SSCS is in the Southern Ocean as well as the events taking place there-in other words the ICR’s illegal whaling activities are under as much scrutiny as the whalers’ claims against SSCS. The Harris and Moure team has filed a motion to have the entire case dismissed from the United States District Court. This motion has yet to be ruled on.

  1. Sometimes the squeaky wheel gets the grease. By focus being put on you, it creates more focus on the wrongs. And that is wonderful. The more people are made aware, the more these cruel psychopaths are made to account. For the sake of all the whales who have given their lives for a unjust cause. Keep up the good work.
