Change of venue denied in poultry lawsuit

Six poultry companies have struck out in their effort to move an upcoming federal court trial out of the Tulsa area.

The companies said there's a local bias against the chicken industry. They claim a fair and impartial jury cannot be chosen here. But a judge has denied a request to move the trial to Wichita.

The companies were sued in 1991 by the city of Tulsa and Metropolitan Utility Authority. They blame the companies for polluting creeks and streams that feed the city's water supply.

The trial is scheduled to begin next month.
