Bybee Farms LLC v. Snake River Sugar Company

U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Washington.

Attorney Wade Woodard represented Washington sugar beet growers (and members in Snake River Sugar Company) in an action alleging bad faith business practices arising out of the co-op’s failure to repurchase the growers’ shares, and in interfering with the growers’ efforts to sell their shares to other coop members.

A jury ordered SRSC to pay more than $800,000 to the growers, finding that the coop had breached the covenant of good faith and fair dealing.
