Sanderson Farms loses $6 million smell suit

A Henderson County jury awarded $6 million to surrounding residents in a class-action lawsuit against Sanderson Farms for, among other things, a “persistent nuisance odor” coming from their farms in Athens and Malakoff.

Sanderson Farms is expected to appeal the judgment, which was awarded last month.
