Thought You Should Know There's Never Going To Be An End Now To The Fight About Corporations Being "Persons"!


JUDGE DENIES REQUEST TO GRANT ELEPHANTS 'PERSONHOOD'

https://www.nbcconnecticut.com/news/local/Judge-Denies-Request-to-Grant-Elephants-Personhood-466961733.html

Thought you should know now that there's never going to be an end to the fight about Corporations being "persons" while the government maintains that Corporations are "persons" and gives them  much better  tax breaks than "real" people.  So, here the battle is brought out in an entirely creative way, but I'll bet this will go on and on and on, with different objects and animals being taken into Court  for view and asserted as "persons" just like Corporations are "persons" according the the U.S. Supreme Court.
