Emmanuel Miller, Jr., of Wisconsin, is the first American to have been tried for NAIS non-compliance, on Wednesday September 23. Wisconsin requires NAIS “premises” registration and many farmers, including Emmanuel Miller, Jr., have refused to comply. Pat Monchilovich, another who refused, goes to trial in October.
This is an enormous historic event, and a pivotal moment in the anti-NAIS movement. Read Paul Griepentrog’s first hand report on the trial:

We will continue to post updates.
