Tulsa, OK – Cherokees file appeal to in poultry case
TULSA, Okla. (AP) The Cherokee Nation has appealed a federal judge's ruling that blocked the tribe from joining Oklahoma's water pollution lawsuit against 11 Arkansas poultry companies.
The tribe submitted its appeal Monday to the Denver-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the Tulsa World reported in Tuesday's editions.
Oklahoma's lawsuit against 11 poultry companies claims they are legally responsible for the handling and disposal of poultry waste that the state alleges has polluted the watershed. The companies deny any wrongdoing.
The trial began Sept. 24 and is expected to last several more weeks.
The appeals court is not expected to issue its decision in the dispute until next year.
