Recently in Ridgecrest, Primex Farms won a $3.4 million lawsuit against Chaparral Farms who failed to deliver pistachios as part of a 3 year contact. The original contract stated that Primex Farms would agree to buy Chaparral’s pistachio crops over a 3 year duration, however, they failed to ship the 5.5 million pounds of nuts during the 2007-2008 seasons because they changed processors. The jury decided unanimously that Chaprral Farms had illegally breached the contract and has been ordered to pay the $3.4 million in compensation.
