Judge allows pollution reports in poultry trial
Decision reversed from hours earlier
The federal judge in the Oklahoma vs. poultry companies lawsuit is allowing government attorneys to submit reports on issues with chicken waste in the Illinois River watershed, according to reports.
Previously, opposing council convinced U.S. District Judge Gregory Frizzell to leave out some of the pollution reports.
Oklahoma Attorney General Drew Edmondson argued the poultry companies did not flag the reports as problematic before the trial, whereas attorneys for the poultry companies called the reports political.
