Court Dismisses Complaint; Rules Injunctive Relief Already Obtained by Bland Farms Bland Farms Will Ship USDA #1 Graded Vidalia Sweet Onions ImmediatelyGLENNVILLE, GA. (Apr. 15, 2014) – Judge D. Jay Stewart of the Superior Court of Tattnall County, Georgia, today dismissed Bland Farms request for declaratory judgment and injunctive relief. Judge Stewart ruled that Bland Farms had already obtained an order on March 19, 2014 from the Superior Court of Fulton County (the “Fulton County Order”) declaring the new packing rule “void and unenforceable” as well as an injunction barring the Commissioner of Agriculture from taking any enforcement action under such rule. Commissioner Black has publicly stated that the Fulton County Order did not grant injunctive relief to Bland Farms and that he intended to enforce the new packing date rule. Judge Stewart’s ruling makes it clear that the Fulton County Order declared the packing rule void and unenforceable and prohibits the Commissioner from enforcing the new packing date rule. As such, all registered growers, including Bland Farms, may immediately pack and ship Vidalia sweet onions that meet USDA #1 grade.
