Dauphin County Senior Judge Warren G. Morgan yesterday [Wednesday] issued an injunction to halt the sale of US confectionery giant Hershey Foods until the court has an opportunity to consider the economic and social issues raised by the Attorney General Mike Fisher. Fisher insists that any public sale of Hershey would leave its hometown community in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, to suffer irreparable harm with layoffs amongst Hershey's 6,200 employees. It would also mean a decrease in the tax base. He filed for an injunction on 23 August in Dauphin County Orphans Court, following reports that a sale could be reached within weeks as potential buyers were already touring the company's plants in preparation for making an offer.
