Hello and Happy New Year!
Today on the show, I'm glad to welcome back our friend Jake Parker. You may remember Jake from Episode #37 where he gave us the background info and reported on verdicts in the first two nuisance lawsuits filed against Smithfield Food subsidiary, Murphy-Brown, in North Carolina.
A lot has happened since July, so I asked Jake to come back on the show and give us a little update. There have now been four trials completed, so Jake updates us on the third and fourth verdicts, both very different and very interesting from a legal standpoint. We also talk about an order from the US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit requiring the trial court judge to lift a gag order that prohibited the parties from discussing the case. Lastly, we talk about where we go from here, including a preview of the fifth trial and an upcoming interlocutory appeal on numerous issues.
