To learn more about this topic, visit AL.Law

Via America’s LawyerMike Papantonio and Farron Cousins, Executive Editor at Trial Magazine discuss how the U.S. federal appeals court reinstated a lawsuit by a group of former child slaves accusing the U.S. unit of Nestle, the world’s largest food maker, of perpetuating child slavery at Ivory Coast cocoa farms.

Transcript:

Mike Papantonio: The Nestle Corporation has been accused of using slave labor all over the globe, but as the largest food maker and distributor on earth, they’ve managed to use their power to escape the consequences of their actions for decades. All of that could come to an end very soon as the Ninth Circuit recently ruled that the company can be sued on US soil for the use of slave labor abroad. Joining me to talk a bit about that is Farron Cousins. We’re going to talk about that and other stories of the week.
