In this episode, Paul discusses the recent jury verdict in the North Carolina Hog Farm Nuisance Cases involving Murphy-Brown Farms. The verdict initially awarded the plaintiffs $50 million in punitive damages, but this has been reduced to $3 million. Prior to this decision, the judge had ruled that North Carolina's right-to-farm law did not apply. Paul points out what language was at issue in North Carolina's law and how it might play out in another state.
