Supreme Court Rules Raisin Farmers Can Fight Federal Controls
Depression era rules manage how much can be sold
The Supreme Court is giving California raisin producers a new day in court to object to a government program that aims to stabilize prices by regulating the market.
The justices on Monday unanimously ordered a federal appeals court in California to take a new look at claims brought by farmers in California's Central Valley about a Depression-era program intended to raise the price of raisins by keeping some of them off the market. The state produces almost all raisins in the United States.
