BOSTON, Mass. (WLNE) – The jury has reached a verdict in the extortion trial of four Teamsters accused of threatening crew members of the reality TV show Top Chef.

Those members of the Local 25 have been found not guilty of threatening staff members of the Bravo show, including host, Padma Lakshmi.
