Nationally known veterinarian will be allowed to testify for the Utah dairy farmers.
Cherniske was one of 18 Utah dairy producers who had filed suit against a nearby power plant, claiming its stray voltage sickened and killed their cows. Cherniske blamed his bankruptcy largely on the fallout from the underground electrical currents, which lowered his dairy’s milk production and contributed to massive medical bills between 1999 and 2003.
The Utah Court of Appeals ruled Friday that the farmers' key expert witness, excluded by the trial judge, will be allowed to testify after all, reports KSL.com
The ruling is a major victory for a large group of family farmers who have been embroiled in a lawsuit against the massive power project for the past decade. They're now a big step closer to a jury trial.
