Following the approximate $6.5M jury verdict/judgment obtained by Seigfreid Bingham on behalf of its client, S&H Farm Supply, Inc. in October 2020, Defendant Bad Boy appealed the case to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. After more than a year of appellate proceedings, the Eighth Circuit rendered its opinion on January 31, 2022, affirming the judgment in all respects. Seigfreid Bingham attorneys Greg Whiston, Shannon Cohorst Johnson, and Curry Sexton remained counsel for S&H Farm Supply, Inc. for the appeal, and the case was argued by Greg Whiston on September 22, 2021.

This verdict was previously recognized by Missouri Lawyers Media as the 4th largest verdict in the State of Missouri for 2020, and received attention for being tried to a jury in the throes of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Congratulations to S & H Farm Supply, Inc, and the Seigfreid Bingham trial and appellate team, on the affirmation of this tremendous result.
