Third-gen Market Basket chief executive Arthur T DeMoulas has suffered a blow in the latest round of the longstanding feud with his cousin Arthur S over the running of the multi-billion-dollar family business – a supermarket chain based in Massachusetts, US.

Arthur T had argued that a board member, who had voted in favour of a large dividend pay out, was not independent and his votes should be nullified.

Market Basket, founded initially as a small grocery store in 1917, has annual revenues of more than $4 billion and employs 18,000.

He said chairman Keith Cowan, although being nominally independent, was biased in favour of his opponents, including DeMoulas’s cousin and rival Arthur S.
