MM Steel v. Reliance Steel, et al.
Our attorneys represented Nucor Corporation in the antitrust litigation matter, MM Steel v. Reliance Steel, et al., filed in the Southern District of Texas. The litigation involved an alleged group boycott claim under § 1 of the Sherman Act. Our team persuaded the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to overturn a US$156 million judgment based on a jury verdict that Nucor had joined a group boycott targeting a new steel distributor. (The court affirmed the judgment against another steel company).
