State judge appointed in 'pink slime' lawsuit

ELK POINT, S.D. (AP)—A South Dakota circuit court judge has been appointed to oversee a defamation lawsuit over ABC News’ coverage of a meat product that critics dub “pink slime.’’

The lawsuit filed by Beef Products Inc. was moved last month from federal court to state court. KTIV-TV ( reports that First Circuit Judge Cheryle Gering will oversee the lawsuit.

Dakota Dunes, S.D.-based BPI claims the TV network damaged the company by misleading consumers into believing that its signature product—lean, finely textured beef—is unhealthy and unsafe. It is seeking $1.2 billion in damages.

ABC has said it intends to ask the circuit court to dismiss the case.
