Michigan Sugar Beet Facility Escapes Lawsuit Over Odors
spacer image
A class action lawsuit against a sugar beet facility in Michigan has been dismissed. The lawsuit was filed by nearby residents who complained that the Michigan Sugar Co. facility emitted strong odors in the area. The lawsuit was filed in Bay County Circuit Court in November 2016 by two residents who alleged the odors interfered with their enjoyment of their properties and diminished their values. The lawsuit was dismissed after a Michigan appeals court ruled in favor of the company's assertion that the plaintiffs had no standing due to a three-year limitation period and that they had failed to show physical injury to themselves or their properties.
