No Settlement in Md. Poultry Pollution Suit

BALTIMORE (AP)- A Perdue Farms spokeswoman says lawyers have not reached a settlement in a poultry pollution case filed by a University of Maryland environmental law clinic.
Attorneys in the case met Wednesday for a closed-door settlement conference in U.S. District Court in Baltimore.
The clinic represents plaintiffs suing Hudson Farm and Perdue Farms Inc., claiming the Salisbury-based poultry company and the Worcester County contract grower are polluting a nearby waterway. Farm groups say the suit could bankrupt Hudson Farm and set a harmful precedent for other family farms.
Perdue spokeswoman Julie DeYoung says while a settlement was not reached, settlement has not been ruled out.
