Tyson Foods Succumbs to the Power of the ContractsProf Blog

TysonOn Thursday, we blogged about a wrongful death claim filed against Tyson Foods.  Plaintiff alleged, among other things, that managers at the plant established a betting pool to see who could come up with the best estimate of how many workers would get infected with COVID.  

On Friday, according to this CNBC report, Tyson announced that it was suspending without pay the managers named in the complaint and that it had hired former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate alleged misconduct at its facility in Waterloo, Iowa.  The report makes no mention of the role the ContractsProf Blog's expose had in prompting Tyson's response, but the timing could not be coincidental.

More like Buster Douglas, I think. And we still have our ears.
