Save the Raisins: SCOTUS protects Raisin Farmers from USDA

As the Free Beacon [1] reported:

“The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that a federal program designed to regulate raisin supply and prices is unconstitutional.”

“The court sided with Fresno, Ca., raisin farmer Marvin Horne who challenged the 1949 marketing order that allowed the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to seize raisins from producers to ensure high prices. Justice John Roberts delivered the 8-1 decision [2] of   the court, joined by Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, and Samuel Alito in full, and in part by Ginsburg, Breyer, and Kagan.”
