Victory for Litigation Team at Buckley Law, P.C.

We are pleased to pass along the recent successful efforts by William E. Gaar of Buckley Law, P.C., and his Co-counsel Arthur S. Garrett and Christopher Van Gundy of Keller and Heckman LLP to secure a $7,500,000 jury verdict for this firm’s client, Townsend Farms.  Townsend Farms, and a food broker through which Townsend Farms had purchased pomegranate seeds contaminated with Hepatitis A, sued a Turkish Food company, Goknur AS, and its U.S. subsidiary, United Juice Corp, in California federal court alleging multiple claims including negligence, intentional misrepresentation and punitive damages. On Friday, April 14, 2017, the jury found Goknur and its subsidiary liable on all counts and awarded just over $8 million in damages to the two plaintiffs.  The lawsuit was related to a hepatitis outbreak which occurred in seven western states in 2013.  For further details, click below link.
