Millenkamp v. Davisco Foods Int'l (9th Cir. - April 14, 2009)

It's 2009. Computers are the size of walnuts. We're preparing for a mission to Mars. It's a brave new world.

But the more things change, the more they stay the same. So I'll summarize this case, which comes (not surprisingly) from Idaho, in four simple words:

"You killed my cows."

Sure, it's about milk permeate, pH levels, rumen acidosis, and lactic acid. But that's just a 21st century way of accidentally whacking some calves.

Some things are constant. Including lawsuits.
