If the Dole Food Co. and a California Supreme Court Judge are right, however, the movie might have to change its ending.
According to the judge, "most of the plaintiffs never worked on Dole-affiilated banana farms," and none of them ever spread the pesticide that the lawsuit blames for their sterility.
Judge Chaney ordered the attorneys to compensate Dole for its legal fees in the case, and set a hearing date of July 24 to determine whether Dominguez should be held in contempt of court. So far the amount of the fees is unknown.
