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.
