Pink Slime – Beef Products Inc. v. ABC Defamation Lawsuit Settled Mid-trial

Back in 2012 Beef Beef Products Inc. brought a lawsuit against ABC in a multibillion-dollar defamation claim.

The complaint had alleged damages of $1.9 billion dollars. Under South Dakota’s Agricultural Food Products Disparagement Act, this amount could have been tripled to $5.7 billion. The terms of the settlement are confidential.
