Stopar, Lefevre and Carey Successful in Ohio Supreme Court Case

9/7/12

Eastman and Smith Ltd. attorneys Jeffrey M. Stopar, Jared J. Lefevre and John M. Carey successfully argued in the Ohio Supreme Court that Ohio law does not recognize a cause of action for tortious acts in concert under Section 876, Restatement (2d) of Torts. The case involved a dispute over milk premiums, in which a milk producer sued a milk cooperative over price premiums, and alleged that the milk cooperative and its marketing contractors committed tortious acts in concert. In a 6 to 1 decision, the Supreme Court agreed that Ohio law has not recognized that claim and declined to do so under the facts of this case.
