"Unprecedented" Settlement Could Mean Jail Time for Elder DeCoster
Host Ben Kieffer talks with Seattle, Washington food safety lawyer Bill Marler, who represented some of those sickened in a 2010 salmonella outbreak caused by contaminated eggs. This week a settlement was reached with Quality Egg and two of its top executives, Jack and Peter DeCoster. Marler says Jack DeCoster comes to the court with a "checkered past," that could make jail time more likely in this case.
