Assateague Coastkeeper and the Waterkeeper Alliance recently announced they
have filed a lawsuit in the federal District Court of Maryland, against Alan
and Kristin Hudson Farm and Perdue Farms Inc.

The lawsuit accuses the
Hudsons, who operate a Perdue-contract chicken farm in Berlin, MD, and Perdue
of illegally discharging “harmful pollution” into the Franklin Branch of the
Pocomoke River, which empties into the Chesapeake Bay.

According to the
organizations, the filing of the litigation follows a failure by Hudson Farm
and Perdue to correct the violations during the 60-day period after a notice of
intent to sue was filed on December 17, 2009.

“Hudson Farm and Perdue
had the opportunity to stop the pollution that puts state residents and the
waterways of Maryland at great risk,” said Assateague Coastkeeper Kathy
Phillips.
