Second Largest Egg Producer Asks 3rd Circuit to Uphold Jury Verdict in Antitrust Case

Rose Acre Farms, the second-largest egg producer in the United States, was cleared of antitrust charges by a jury in June of 2018, ten years after the case [In re Processed Egg Products Antitrust Litigation] originated in 2008. Shortly thereafter, shell egg purchasers appealed the judgment to the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals. The egg producer has now filed a brief with the court arguing that, contrary to what the egg purchasers argue, the lower court applied the correct standard.
