In November 2012, the estranged husband of an employee of ConAgra Foods Inc. shot at workers at the company’s headquarters in Omaha, Neb. ConAgra sought to have Ryan Zimmerman banned from any contact with the company. After the lower court lifted ConAgra’s temporary restraining order against him and refused to grant a one-year permanent injunction, ConAgra appealed. On May 9, the Nebraska Supreme Court ruled in the company’s favor.

Heidi A. Guttau-Fox, partner at Baird Holm, L.L.P., represented ConAgra in the case.
