Abstract

The case against Oprah Winfrey, brought by a group of Texas cattle feeders, has focused attention on a movement that has been quietly spreading through the states—the enactment of food disparagement statutes. To date, about one-fourth of the states have enacted such statutes with several more states considering similar legislation. In two states, Colorado and Delaware, statutes passed by the state legislature were vetoed by the governors. On February 18, 1998, the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Texas dismissed the count alleging violation of the food disparagement statute.
