The Coalition for Justice for Civil Rights is backing up amateur oyster farmer Greg Garrett in his fight against York County, the Daily Press reported. Garrett is appealing a decision of the York County Board of Zoning Appeals, which ruled that Garrett’s oyster farm was unauthorized because he lacked a permit. Garrett claims his farming equipment was illegally seized, and that since his property is zoned for agriculture, he may engage in water based cultivation of oysters.
