    Foie Gras Foes Hurl Lawsuit; Foie Fans Duck It was bound to happen: After skirmishes in California, Chicago, and New Jersey, the enemies of engorged duck liver and its tasty dividends have filed suit in Albany, bringing the battle against foie gras to the gates of our haute-cuisine citadels. Marcus Henley, the operations manager at Hudson Valley Foie Gras, denies that the birds suffer: “The American Veterinary Medical Association, in their last two annual councils, rejected claims that foie gras is detrimental to animal welfare.” (We found this on the AVMA’s Website: “‘We’ve looked at the science and current production practices, and have found it is not necessary for the AVMA to take a position either for or against foie gras production at this time,’ said Dr. Bonnie Beaver, AVMA president.”) Ariane Daguin, the founder of foie gras supplier D’Artagnan and one of the delicacy’s fiercest defenders, puts it even more simply: “These lawsuits are frivolous. The ducks are healthy.” With all that force-feeding, they certainly aren’t going hungry. Suit Bids to Ban N.Y.
