Where a meat product manufacturer and a producer of commercial ovens, which were both parties in a breach of contract case, challenged the dismissal of their claims, the judgment is affirmed because the oven producer’s wrongful termination claim was not supported by the evidence, and the manufacturer’s cross claim failed because the manufacturer did not show that it owned the cooking process and its patent.
Judgment is affirmed.
