Governor Pressures University of Maryland Law Clinic

Cut to the University of Maryland Environmental Law Clinic.  It's the old story: law school clinic work is unpopular.  Local industry gets sued.  Politicians respond.  Here, Maryland's Governor wrote a tough letter pressing the clinic to drop a suit against a Maryland farmer/polluter.  This follows similar pressure from legislators last year.  The good news: Dean Phoebe Haddon is pushing back.  You can find letters from both the Governor and Haddon here.
