The Minnesota Court of Appeals has upheld a stray voltage ruling in the case of Harlan Poppler, a Waverly, Minn. dairy farmer, reports the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

The case was remanded back to the local Wright County court to more accurately calculate Poppler’s estimated $700,000 loss.

The Appeals Court also ruled that trespass law does not apply in this case. Poppler had alleged  that his electric power cooperative had trespassed onto his property by circulating electricity through the soil.
