Betting The Farm

Nestled in the central Missouri hills, Lin-J Farms has built a reputation for quality and integrity. When an outsider claimed to have an oral partnership with Lin-J, Ricky Taylor literally bet the farm we would win his case at trial. Under cross-examination, the judge found the claimant’s testimony to be “unclear, imprecise and sometimes contradictory.” By the time she left the witness stand, the claimant had testified the partnership formed on two different dates with three different sets of partners. The judge didn’t buy it, ruled there was no oral partnership, and the farm was safe and sound.
