Perdue seeks up to $2.5M in poultry pollution case
4:40 PM, Jan 9, 2013
BALTIMORE (AP) -
Perdue Farms is seeking up to $2.5 million in attorney fees following its victory in a poultry pollution case that has been closely watched by environmentalist and agriculture interests for its potential impact on the industry.
Perdue spokeswoman Julie DeYoung said Friday that the company was seeking to recoup attorney fees from the Waterkeeper Alliance, which filed suit against the company and an Eastern Shore contract grower.
The company said in its filing in U.S. District Court in Baltimore that the alliance continued to litigate what it called a groundless case after learning that an uncovered pile of what was claimed to be chicken manure turned out to be harmless biosolids. The alliance did not immediately return messages seeking comment.
