Sometime this year, Tilikum, Katina, Corky, Kasatka and Ulises filed a lawsuit for violation of their Thirteenth Amendment right (the right against slavery and involuntary servitude) against their employer. These five were made to live in concrete tanks and forced to perform daily against their will. They were taken from their original homes and now are required to stage a show on cue for audiences at parks in San Diego and Orlando, Florida. U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Miller heard the arguments of both parties last Monday. However, last Wednesday he dismissed the case holding that the 13th Amendment only applies to humans.
