Favorable Settlement of Sherman and Clayton Act Claims on Behalf of an International Toy Manufacturer in an MDL Case in New York Federal Court

Over 30 lawsuits were filed nationwide by state attorneys general, groups of consumers seeking class action status, individual companies, and individual consumers alleging widespread antitrust violations under the Sherman and Clayton Acts. These cases were consolidated in federal court in New York by a Multi-District Litigation (MDL) panel. Our client, an international toy manufacturer, was one of nine defendants. We were able to achieve one of the most favorable settlements through our development of the evidence and the use of a "baseball" arbitration procedure.
