Indiana High Court Takes Up Hog Farm Fight Case

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ The state Supreme Court is weighing oral arguments in a northwestern Indiana youth camp's fight to stop a farmer from raising more than 9,000 hogs on nearby land.
 
The justices heard arguments Monday from attorneys for YMCA Camp Tecumseh and White County's commissioners.
 
Attorneys for the commissioners want the camp's lawsuit challenging a zoning change for the farm heard in White County. But the camp's attorneys want the case heard in adjacent Carroll County, where the 90-year-old camp is located.
 
Indiana's appeals court ruled in June that White County is the preferred venue for the lawsuit.
 
Camp officials appealed the ruling to the high court. They say odors from the proposed hog farm would harm the outdoor experience of 35,000 people who visit the 600-acre camp annually.
