Verdict for the Defense


J. Kent Mathewson represented the defendant against allegations of unfair competition in the food industry.  The matter began as a jury trial before Judge Richard Posner, sitting by designation in the Northern District of Illinois.  During the trial, because of perceived juror misconduct, the case was converted to a bench trial.  At the conclusion of evidence and following closing arguments, Judge Posner ruled in favor of the defendant on all counts.
