Wounds from suit filed by Waterkeepers to take a while to heal

Long before a federal judge in Baltimore issued his verdict in the case of the Waterkeeper Alliance vs. Alan Hudson and Perdue Farms, many environmental advocates on the Eastern Shore felt they had already lost.

Groups that work closely with farmers and the poultry industry saw no upside to the case. Not in the idea that one of their own had filed a lawsuit against a family farmer. Not in the fact that the Waterkeepers had gone after Perdue, which has undertaken initiatives to reduce the pollution generated in the chicken-growing process.
