Government Suit Against Kosher Poultry Dealers to Proceed

Download PDF for this date

An important legal decision in the case of sixty-eight defendants, charged with the violation of the Sherman Anti-Trust Law, in the kosher poultry suit, was handed down by Federal Judge Winslow.

The defendants contended that the Greater New York Poultry Chamber of Commerce, to which they belong, was not subject to prosecution under the Sherman act because of non-incorporation.

Federal Judge Winslow decided that the government had proceeded properly when it instituted proceedings under the Sherman law and included the Chamber of Commerce among the defendants by filing information against all of them instead of seeking indictments. This decision removes a barrier erected by the counsel for the defense. The trial will probably take place in the early part of 1929.
