Llacua v. Western Range Association

In the Tenth Circuit, we encounter the following allegation: “shepherds tend herds of 1,000 sheep or more, . . . protecting them from the constant threat of natural predators like coyotes, mountain lions, and wolves . . . . During lambing . . . season, the shepherds assist the animals in the birthing process, and at all times, the shepherds provide for the health and medical needs of the herd.” Will this somehow result in a civil RICO claim surviving a motion to dismiss? Ewe bet it will. [There’s more at Popehat.]
