Md. legislature scrutinizing law clinic over chicken farm suit
In Maryland, messing with Big Chicken can bring big trouble.
The latest case study is playing out in Annapolis, where the state Senate wants to impose greater scrutiny on the University of Maryland's environmental law clinic. The reason? Apparently, it's the law clinic's pro bono work for an environmental group that is suing an Eastern Shore chicken farmer and the poultry giant Perdue Farms.
