Tyson v. United States Department of Agriculture, 589 F.Supp.2d 584 (E.D. N.C. 2008)

(plaintiff's tobacco crop damaged by rain and produced only 65% of estimated crop output production for the crop year, but plaintiff actually received 102% of expected income from tobacco crop when factoring in insurance proceeds received for damaged crop; plaintiff subsequently applied to FSA for crop damage payments (CDPs) and received another $80,000; summary judgment for government upheld where plaintiff had extensive knowledge in FSA farm program eligibility rules and should have known that $80,000 was erroneously paid).
