Group Won't Appeal Poultry Pollution Case

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

They know they ain't got a leg to stand on.

Hope Perdue wins the legal fees case, too.
