Jan P. Levine, a litigation partner with Pepper Hamilton and a member of the firm's Health Sciences Department, was quoted in the December 12, 2019 Law360 article, "Pa. Jury Fries Egg Price-Fixing Conspiracy Claims."
"We are very pleased after all these years to have a complete vindication of the egg industry after being accused of price-fixing," said Jan Levine, an attorney with Pepper Hamilton LLP representing United Egg. "We did not, and the jury found that."
Levine told jurors during closing arguments on Tuesday that the Food Marketing Institute, an industry group representing the grocery industry, had been working on its own animal welfare guidelines for egg-producing hens at the time United Egg started to put the program together.
