Arbitration clause in poultry production contract construed
January 14, 2008 | Roger McEowen
Contract poultry growers sued the defendant for breach of contract. The trial court ruled that the production contract did not require the parties' selected arbitrators to be neutral, and even if the poultry growers' chosen arbitrator exhibited evidence bias, the defendant presented no evidence of prejudice. Winfrey v. Simmons Foods, Inc., 495 F.3d 549 (8th Cir. 2007).
