Dairy farmers win $1.1 million against utility

David Baumgardner and his wife, Lucinda, hold 4-year-old Shayla, the youngest of their 10 children. On Friday, the Baumgardners won a $1.1 million jury verdict against Puget Sound Energy after saying stray voltage had hurt milk production. Dairy farmers across the country have won similar cases.
