Defendants appealed the judgment entered in favor of plaintiffs, following a jury verdict finding that defendant minority members’ attempt to oust majority member plaintiff Meadowfresh Solutions USA LLC from the company and remove plaintiff John Fulton as managing member caused plaintiffs to suffer more than $7.3 million in damages.
Where defendants admitted the facts that formed the basis of the trial court’s entry of a partial directed verdict and where a private individual could be held liable for providing false information to law enforcement that forms the basis of a criminal prosecution, defendants correctly had a verdict entered against them.
Judgment is affirmed.
