Mar-Jac Poultry Settles With Washington State A/G

05/24/2022

Following a lawsuit filed in October 2021 against twenty leading broiler integrators by Bob Ferguson, Attorney General of Washington State, Mar-Jac Poultry has settled and agreed to cooperate.  The company will pay $725,00 in terms of a consent agreement alleging anticompetitive action.  Mar-Jac Poultry will produce information and documentation implicating other companies as co-conspirators.

 

Litigation initiated in Washington State is separate from federal action and ongoing civil cases. The claim of collusion is based in part on using data provided by Agri-Stats, a co-defendant in ongoing civil cases against major broiler integrators. Many of the Defendants have settled with classes comprising direct and indirect Plaintiffs.
