DENVER, CO -- A federal appeals court has agreed to hear arguments in Oklahoma Attorney General Drew Edmondson's bid to stop poultry litter in the Illinois River watershed.

The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver granted a request by Oklahoma officials to expedite their appeal of a Tulsa judge's ruling.

That ruling was to deny a preliminary injunction in the case.
