Texas A&M University has repeatedly tried to hide what has gone on in its canine muscular dystrophy (MD) lab—and repeatedly failed.
Today, the school can chalk up another loss.
In a first-of-its-kind ruling within the Fifth Circuit, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas has denied the university’s attempt to dismiss a lawsuit that PETA had filed against it.
The litigation challenges the Texas A&M vice president of brand development’s refusal to allow us to place an ad on the school’s buses featuring Peony, a dog used in the university’s canine MD experiments.
This groundbreaking victory means that we can now collect evidence from Texas A&M regarding its denial of our ad, which we allege is a free-speech violation.

Under pressure from PETA supporters, the laboratory has released dozens of dogs for adoption and ended its breeding program. But the school continues to warehouse 21 dogs—many of whom are completely healthy—in its barren metal cells.
