2 sides in corporate farming battle seek judge's approval
September 8, 2017
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The two sides in a legal battle over the constitutionality of North Dakota's Depression-era ban on corporate farming have both formally asked a judge for a decision on whether the law infringes on interstate commerce.
The two sides have been arguing in court documents throughout the summer, after Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem asked U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland to agree with the state's argument that the law doesn't violate the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution.
A bench trial isn't scheduled until February 2019.
