College alarmed by animal rights ‘extremists’

From Courthouse News Service:

DETROIT (Nov 27, 2012) – Wayne State University is exempt from answering a FOIA request about its use of dogs in medical research, because the last time it did “animal rights extremists” threatened its researchers with “torture and death,” the university claims in court.

The university sued the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, in Wayne County Court.

Wayne State claims it released records in 2011 to the Physicians Committee, which sought information on the university’s use of dogs in cardiovascular research.
