"Animal Welfare Activists File Lawsuit To Overturn Utah 'Ag Gag' Law"

"SALT LAKE CITY -- Animal-welfare activists filed a lawsuit Monday to overturn a Utah law that prohibits undercover filming while trespassing at farm operations, saying it restricts free expression."

"The Animal Legal Defense Fund and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals filed the legal action in federal court in Salt Lake City.

The Utah law makes it a misdemeanor to trespass on private property to record images or sounds of a livestock operation."
