“The lawsuit initiated by Matthew Block and the company he runs surreptitiously, Worldwide Primates, against peaceful animal rights advocates, has been dismissed. The judge clearly recognized that this suit was flawed and without merit. This is a victory for justice, morality and the First Amendment. The tens of thousands of non-human primates tortured and killed by Block and his employees still have a voice to speak for them. Matthew Block, John Resuta and anyone associated with them will continue to hear the truth about their moral crimes, as will their family, friends and neighbors. Protests will continue. We will never back down, until they stop the killing!” -Ron Roberts (Smash HLS)

A judge on Wednesday dismissed a Miami company’s lawsuit against a group of activists known for its aggressive protests against medical research on primates.
Worldwide Primates Inc., which provides monkeys and apes to research labs, had requested a restraining order against members of Smash HLS.
Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Stanford Blake ruled the lawsuit had not legally proved the 11 protesters were a nuisance or a source of emotional distress toward company operations manager John Resuta.
