Alan and Kristin Hudson grow corn, soybeans and hay, and raise cows and chickens on a 200-acre farm on Maryland's Eastern Shore. They have been the targets of a federal lawsuit filed by Robert Kennedy Jr.'s New York-based Waterkeeper Alliance, and they feared losing the farm which has been in their family for four generations. Yesterday's decision by a federal judge represents a big victory for the Hudsons and farmers across Maryland.

Many Marylanders remain disappointed that the University of Maryland Law School used taxpayer dollars to help provide support to this wealthy out-of-state organization in its lawsuit against the Hudsons, and we are hopeful that yesterday's court decision will discourage the Law School from making a similar misjudgment in the future.

Check out this video on the Hudsons' situation as a result of the lawsuit:
