A case management conference is set in a breach of contract suit filed against Prairie Farms Dairy Inc., by the owners of a Highland dairy who remain without an attorney.

Attorney David Antognoli withdrew as counsel for plaintiffs Michael and Denise Richter, the owners of Rich Lane Farms in Highland, on June 3.

The case management conference is set July 29 at 9:30 a.m.

The Richters are currently listed as representing themselves in the suit filed against Prairie

The plaintiffs filed suit against Prairie Farms in 2006 alleging that the defendant violated the terms of a milk marketing agreement the pair entered into.

The Richters claim that they have expended large sums of money in order to meet their
obligations under the agreement.

Following Antognoli's withdrawal, Madison County Circuit Judge David Hylla stayed discovery in the case until the Richters hire new representation.

Former Madison County Circuit Judge Daniel Stack previously oversaw the case.
Stack bowed out citing his relationship with the plaintiffs.

Donald Schoemaker, Laura Hayden and others represent Prairie Farms.

The case is Madison case number 06-L-892.
