Owens, et al. v. Contigroup Companies, Inc., et al., 344 S.W.3d 717 (Mo. Ct. App. 2011)

($11.05 million jury verdict against defendant for damages arising from creation of temporary nuisance caused by odors from 83 million gallons of liquid hog waste in runoff lagoons affirmed; state (MO) law allows a plaintiff to recover compensatory damages for loss of use or enjoyment of property that is business property (as opposed to just being a residence); fact that plaintiffs did not make any claim of loss of value of property as a result of the nuisance immaterial; issue is whether defendant's conduct interfered with plaintiffs' rightful possession of their land and the right to use and enjoy the land; substantial testimony existed that odors, gases and chemicals entered plaintiffs' properties).
