A new decision by the Illinois Supreme Court reaffirms a state law that blocks nuisance lawsuits against farmers.</p><p>The case involves the Roger and Bobbie Toftoy, who moved into a new house across from a cattle farm. They found the flies to be so bad that they sometimes could not go outside.</p><p>They sued and won, and a judge told the farmers to fix the problem. But on appeal, the cattlemen argued they were protected under an Illinois law meant to encourage farming.</p> Tue, 04 Dec 2012 17:53:58 +0000 Rich Egger 25300 at http://tspr.org Country Living and Livestock Farms
