The board of the trust that owns a controlling stake in Hershey Foods may have abandoned its sales plan, but we have not yet heard the end of the story.
Attorney General Mike Fisher returns to the courts today [Thursday] to try to force the trust board to sign a legally binding commitment not to sell its stake in Hershey Foods. Fisher filed a brief last week to this effect, and a hearing has been scheduled for today.
The trust has submitted a motion to dismiss all court filings relating to the cancelled sale, but Fisher has asked the Dauphin County Orphans Court to reject this motion. He said he would only support a dismissal if the court approved his request that any sale of the company would be contingent upon prior notice to the attorney general and court approval, reported the Harrisburg Patriot.
