United States v. Nebraska Beef, Ltd., No. 17-1344 (8th Cir. 2018)Annotate this Case
The Eighth Circuit affirmed the district court's grant of summary judgment to the government in an action to enforce a settlement agreement. The court held that OSC's press release stating that its investigation found that Nebraska Beef had engaged in illegal employment practices did not constitute a material breach of the settlement agreement. Therefore, because the government did not fail to fulfill any promise, Nebraska Beef's breach of contract counterclaim failed and the government's claim for enforcement prevailed.
