Cotton farmers win friendly verdict in contract case

Our client, a cotton farmer, was sued by Calcot Ltd. for failure to deliver on a sizable cotton contract. The farmer conceded that he hadn’t delivered as promised and offered to pay Calcot $54,000 to make up for the shortfall. Calcot, however, sought an unreasonable $1 million in damages, later reduced to $200,000 by the time the case went to trial. The jury came back with a verdict of $54,000 – the same amount our client had offered to pay in the first place.
