Supreme Auto Transport v. ArcelorMittal et al.
The firm represents Nucor Corporation in an antitrust class action filed on behalf of indirect purchasers of steel products against all of the major US steel producers in the Northern District of Illinois. Plaintiffs alleged that defendants conspired to restrict steel output, thus increasing the price of steel and consequently, the price of products containing steel components. The judge granted our client’s motion to dismiss in March 2017 and denied a motion for reconsideration in July 2017. In September 2017, plaintiffs appealed to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals.
