Poultry companies take case to the public

US - Poultry companies are taking their case against Attorney General Drew Edmondson outside the courtroom and bringing it to the general public.

Thirteen poultry companies plan to advertise in newspapers, primarily in northeastern Oklahoma, to challenge what they claim are inaccurate assertions by Edmondson in a federal lawsuit he filed last year.

The attorney general's lawsuit claims that poultry litter is polluting the Illinois River watershed.

Spokeswoman Janet Wilkerson says the ads are the poultry companies' way of setting the record straight. She claims Edmondson is, quote, "trying his case in the court of public opinion by spreading exaggerations, innuendo and untruths."
