Stony Brook Chimps Could Be Granted "Personhood "

by Lab Manager
While a May 20 ruling by a Manhattan Supreme Court Justice appeared to grant legal personhood to two research chimpanzees from Stony Brook University, the Nonhuman Rights Project later clarified that the judge will hear arguments on whether or not the chimps will remain at the university and whether or not they could be considered "persons" in the eyes of the law, but has not  yet made a final decision granting them legal personhood.
