Breaking : UF Unlawfully Withholds Records, Eleventh Hour Sues AGAIN!

Press Release
For Immediate Release

The University of Florida is once again unlawfully withholding records and images documenting the unmitigated horrors to which they subject animals for profit. And Eleventh Hour is once again dragging them back into court to gain access to their hellish labs. In this latest battle in a five year war between the two entities, the University contends that experiments in which they are blinding untold numbers of mice in addition to dogs and ultimately non-human primates, are exempt from public disclosure according to section 1004.22, Florida Statutes. This law protects trade secrets and other proprietary information. Eleventh Hour contends that millions of taxpayers dollars are being applied for and awarded to certain vivisectors who’s atrocities are therefore fully within the public domain.

Attorney Marcy I. LaHart filed a six page lawsuit in The Circuit Court of The Eighth Judicial Circuit  Alachua County, Florida on Friday June 12th, 2015 on behalf of Eleventh Hour For Animals’ Senior Lab Investigator Karen Kline. Ms. LaHart demonstrates that UF is flagrantly ignoring the law, withholding public records from this activist group, and calls for an immediate hearing.

Marco Salemi – $MILLIONS of Monkeys Unaccounted for Inside University of Florida

by Camille A. Marino

Almost every single time I learn something new, it only serves to highlight how much more I still have to learn. This is especially true when it comes to the obscured and intentionally-convoluted animal torture industry inside the University of Florida for which taxpayers award them approximately $400 million annually.

For five years now, I have been filing open records requests for veterinary records and protocols for every single nonhuman primate that the USDA confirms is inside of UF after each inspection of their labs.

COMPLAINT CITES CORRUPTION AND NEGLIGENCE IN UF MONKEY LABS

Moments ago, Eleventh Hour for Animals filed a second federal complaint with the USDA for violations of the Animal Welfare Act citing a culture of corruption inside the University of Florida and a companion culture of negligence that permeates their nonhuman primate experimentation program. The complaint filed by the group’s founder, Camille A. Marino, relates solely to a 6-monkey “research” study funded by the Michael J. Fox Foundation, the shocking details of which we reported days ago. Among the documented violations: the “scientific” rationale offered by UF for the torment visited on six macaques was simply that the Fox Foundation was willing to give them the money to do so when they couldn’t find funding elsewhere; there are up to 5-month lapses where some of the monkeys were neither monitored nor was any care whatsoever recorded; and they actually LOST a monkey.
