Judge requires health board to reimburse Missouri farmers

A Missouri Circuit Court judge awarded farmers in a Cooper County Health Board case $94,000 to recoup some attorney fees after a jury ruled the health board knowingly violated laws in the debate over concentrated animal feeding operations.

Brent Haden, the attorney representing the farmers, says the health board didn’t adequately communicate when decisions around CAFOs were being made and didn’t provide requested information related to its decisions.

Later this month, Haden will ask the judge to reimburse additional attorney fees.
