Missouri Lumberyard Trial Reset
A jury trial between two lumberyards in Missouri has a new pretrial date set for November.
The St. Joseph News-Press reports that “in May 2016, Porters Building Centers Inc., based in Kearney, Missouri, filed a lawsuit against Sprint Lumber of St. Joseph and Platte City, its owner and four former employees. The action alleges that the four ex-employees of Porters conspired with Sprint Lumber to force Porters out of business — and thus result in a monopoly of the market. The lawsuit seeks financial relief for damages based on the attempt to solicit employees and customers from Porters.”
