Filmmaker Files Lawsuit against the Humane Society of the United States

A Malibu-based filmmaker has filed a lawsuit against the Humane Society of the United States, accusing the animal rights organization of reneging on an agreement to promote his documentary film about the dog meat trade in Asia. The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court claims that the Humane Society accepted a pledge by Hiroshi Horiike for $1 million with the understanding that the group would help promote his film, "Eating Happiness". The donation was to be made in two installments of $500,000 over two years. The first $500,000 was transferred to the Humane Society in August, the lawsuit said. The lawsuit claims that the Humane Society also promised that federal legislation banning the consumption of dog meat in the United States would be passed within three months of receiving the money. But after receiving the first installment of the donation, the organization failed to follow through, undermining the impact of the documentary, Horiike claims. The film was released in the United States in October. Humane Society of the United States, said the organization made stopping the dog meat trade in Asia a top priority long before it began discussions with Horiike. The organization agreed to hold some events and screenings of the movie, and planned on using Horiike's donation to assist efforts it had already begun to push for a federal law banning the sale of dogs for consumption.
