FILE - In this April 10, 2006, file photo raisin farmer Marvin Horne stands in a field of grapevines planted in 1918 next to his home in Kerman, Calif. The Supreme Court said, June 22, 2015, that a program that lets the government take raisins away from farmers to help reduce supply and boost market prices is unconstitutional. The justice said that forcing raisin growers to give up part of their annual crop without full payment is an illegal confiscation of private property.  The ruling is a victory for Horne, who claimed his family was losing money under a 1940s-era program they call outdated and ineffective.  (AP Photo/Gary Kazanjian, file)
