CASE ENTRY

Cascabel Cattle Company, LLC v. United States

In 2014, during temporary fever tick quarantine in Cameron County, Tex., officials allegedly round up cattle improperly and apply pesticide to them improperly, which injures and kills the animals. Fifth Circuit: Can’t sue over that; the Federal Tort Claims Act contains an exception for damages caused by the establishment of a quarantine.
