Supreme Court to Take Up Raisin Market Regulations

At issue is how farmers may launch challenge

|

The Supreme Court is taking up an appeal from California raisin producers who object to a government program that aims to stabilize prices by regulating the raisin market.

The justices said Tuesday they will review a federal appeals court ruling that dismissed claims brought by farmers in California's Central Valley. The state produces almost all raisins in the United States and about 40 percent of the crop worldwide.
