In 2014, the Maryland General Assembly updated the state’s right-to-farm law to include commercial fishing and seafood operations.  As many of you know, a state’s right-to-farm law operates to provide a defense to nuisance lawsuits brought against agricultural operations and, now in Maryland, commercial fishing and seafood operations.

To help these operations and agricultural operations understand how the law’s nuisance defense operates, Dr. Lori Lynch and I have updated the existing UME fact sheet highlighting how the right-to-farm law operates in Maryland.  The fact sheet titled Understanding Agricultural Liability: Maryland’s Right-to-Farm Law Can Limit Liability for Maryland Farmers and Commercial Fishing and Seafood Operators is currently available on SSRN and on Medium.com.  Take a moment to review it and provide us with feedback.
