OMAHA (DTN) -- The latest federal lawsuit over labeling the country of origin of meat is well on its way to becoming a litigious industry-wide reunion of claims, counterclaims and intervention.

Those groups filed a request on Friday explaining to the judge the "high likelihood" of their legal arguments winning out and asked the judge to use that as the basis to grant an injunction against the rule as soon as possible.
