PETA Calls Inmate's Case Fishy
A federal district court in Massachusetts ruled differently in 2008, however, ordering a prison in that state to provide a Buddhist inmate with vegan meals and requiring the state to pay the legal fees incurred by the inmate in bringing the challenge.
Explaining its interest in Cosby's claim, another PETA attorney said that fish are "not swimming vegetables." "They have thoughts," said Jeff Kerr, general counsel to the PETA Foundation. "They have interests. They have a central nervous system." •
