Tyson Hit with $1.28 Billion Verdict
It turns out it was the other Tyson:
A federal jury on Tuesday ruled that top U.S. meat packer Tyson Foods Inc. illegally manipulated the cattle market, awarding damages of $1.28 billion to cattle producers in a case that could have a far-reaching impact on the $70 billion U.S. beef industry.
In deciding the eight-year-old case, the jury in Montgomery, Alabama, also ordered Tyson to change the way it buys cattle, representatives for both sides said.
There is no mention as to whether Hillary Clinton is involved.
Alabama juries are notorious for outlandish tort awards. My guess is this will be reduced by a decimal point by the time all’s said and done.
