US: Smithfield pleased with court decision
US meat processor Smithfield Foods has backed the decision by a federal court for its civil suit against the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW).
Smithfield filed a civil suit in October 2007 to seek relief from an "extortionate corporate campaign" perpetuated by the UFCW and their agents over the last few years.
The Court denied the Union's motion to dismiss the case while permitting Smithfield the opportunity to amend one of its several counts to more closely track the provisions of the statute.
Smithfield is seeking damages resulting from the union's "intentional and malicious misconduct".
