Chubb Wins Contaminated Peanut Butter D&O Case
Thu. September 17, 2009

I think this means that:
PCA's insurer, Federal/Chubb, deposited $1 million Officers and Directors liability policy limit with the
bankruptcy court for PCA, and thus prevented Stewart Parnell, Joe Sams, plant manager, or the
PCA plant's quality control manager from getting their hands on the whole $1 million to finance their
legal defense. The money is now in the bankruptcy estate of PCA rather than these officers and directors
hands. That hardly pays for all the damage PCA did or the nine individuals who died families. But at least
I believe it's not in Stewart Parnell's pockets.

An update as to 'justice' for the people involved w/the tainted peanut butter. The owner of this company knew and let it still be sold - how is that for a conscience?

Victims of tainted peanut butter outbreak demand criminal charges

Earlier that day, Marler and his clients had met with attorneys from the Department of Justice to demand that criminal charges be brought against the former CEO of PCA, Stewart Parnell.

The facts of the case are staggering. The congressional investigation that followed the outbreak uncovered internal emails suggesting Parnell knew his company was shipping salmonella-contaminated peanuts.
