A New York judge has granted two research chimps the writ of habeas corpus — a move that allows them to challenge their detention.

The decision, says Science magazine, effectively recognizes chimps as legal persons, marking the first time in U.S. history that an animal has been given that right.

The order, dated April 20, requires Stony Brook University to appear in court and provide a legally sufficient reason for keeping the two chimps, Hercules and Leo. A hearing is scheduled for May 6.

This is nothing new. Back in the 18th century there was an English nut job named Jeremy Bentham. He was the prototype progressive who founded Utilitarianism which was based on the premise that anything was good if it made you happy. Bentham also averred that people did not have natural rights but animals did. He also invented a building designed for spying on its inhabitants, called the Panopticon, which is today a metaphor for a government which 'sees' all its citizens. Think Orwell, or NSA.
