Waterkeepers Alliance

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A New York-based environmental group that sued Perdue Farms and an Eastern Shore contract grower says it won't appeal a federal judge's ruling in a poultry pollution case.

The Waterkeeper Alliance announced in a statement on Wednesday that while the group believes it presented compelling evidence, it won't appeal U.S. District Jud

ge William Nickerson's ruling, because of the high burden of proof appellate courts impose for reversing a district court's findings.

BALTIMORE (AP) - The University of Maryland says an environmental law clinic suing Perdue and an Eastern Shore poultry grower over farm runoff is being awarded for its work.

The university says the Environmental Law Clinic at the Carey School of Law will receive the award from the American Bar Association in August. The association gives the annual award to an individual or organization for leadership and contributions to environmental protection and sustainable development.
