The case of the day is Nonhuman Rights Project, Inc. ex rel. Beulah et al. v. R.W. Commerford & Sons, Inc. (Conn. Super. Ct. 2017). I wrote a polemic about the case back in November 2017. The case was a petition for habeas corpus brought by Steven Wise’s group, the Nonhuman Rights Project, on behalf of several elephants owned by a Connecticut zoo. Can you guess how it turned out?
