We had previously posted about the State of Missouri’s petition for certiorari to review California’s requirement that all eggs sold in the State conform to California’s minimum cage requirement for hens.  The Supreme Court has denied the petition.

The basis for the District Court’s and the Ninth Circuit’s dismissal of the case was that Missouri had not suffered any concrete harm to its sovereign interest, not the merits.  So it is likely that either Missouri or a Missouri egg producer will refile the lawsuit.
