Jason O’Rourke and Jenny Juehring receive favorable jury verdict
Jason O’Rourke and Jenny Juehring successfully represented an agricultural company in a breach of contract and fraud action in Johnson County District Court. The agricultural company alleged that it provided its prized Wagyu bull to the defendants for boarding pursuant to a livestock agreement and, at the end of the agreement, the defendants returned a different bull to the company and failed to account for what happened to the company’s prized Wagyu bull. After a six-day jury trial, the jury returned a verdict finding the defendants breached the livestock agreement and made fraudulent misrepresentations to the agricultural company and awarded $460,000.00 in damages.
