Georgia Moves to Protect Farmers From Nuisance Lawsuits

Farmers in Georgia could have greater protection from lawsuits by neighbors over smells, noises or other nuisances under a bill approved by the state House on Thursday.

HB 1150 would prohibit a farm from being deemed a nuisance if it has operated for a year or longer. The House passed it by a vote of 102-62. It now goes to the state Senate for consideration.

Supporters say they want to ensure family farms remain viable and don’t get driven out of business by neighbors who don’t like their practices.
