Marler sues food “auditor” Primus Labs in listeria cantaloupe case

  • If Bill Marler is a food-poisoning lawyer, he must either be a very good lawyer to get off the food-poisoning charges or is trying a Hail-Mary pass. In either case, as a food poisoner, he’s responsible for the poisoning and not whoever is trying to audit the process, no matter how good a lawyer he is. Unless he is claiming that being a lawyer has destroyed his sense of right and wrong, which may be true.
