WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Supreme Court on Feb. 24 declined to review a Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ruling that Pilgrim's Pride Corp., a large integrated poultry company, did not violate the Packers and Stockyards Act by idling, rather than selling, a chicken processing plant, thereby reducing the supply of chickens and increasing prices (Gary Heath Agerton, et al. v. Pilgrim's Pride Corporation, No. 13-840, U.S. Sup.).
