For Immediate Release:

On Friday, March 13th 2009, Utah animal rights activist Jordan Halliday was held in contempt of court for refusing to testify before a grand jury. Jordan Halliday is still not getting *full* vegan meals. Please call and request he receive *full* vegan meals. He is getting dairy and egg free meals, but *not* meat free meals. Sometimes 40-50% of his meals are okay, but sometimes only 10% of his meals are okay. They now claim to him that it may take a couple days to get him full vegan meals -- if at all. It isn't exactly rocket science to provide extra pasta, rice, or beans.
