Easterday Claims Against Tyson Foods Dismissed


A lawsuit initiated by convicted fraudster Cody Easterday against Tyson Foods was recently dismissed by Judge Stanley A. Bastian, of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Washington State.  Easterday is currently serving an eleven-year sentence for fraud. His imprisonment relates to false claims amounting to $244 million for non-existent cattle purported to have been raised by Easterday Ranches. All claims against Tyson Foods were settled when his company entered bankruptcy.  Easterday had claimed that he was owed $163 million for the period 2010 through 2020 when he raised cattle to be packed by Tyson in their Pasco, WA.  plant.
