Berger & Montague serves as counsel on behalf of direct
purchasers of containerboard products (which includes both
corrugated sheets and corrugated products such as boxes and other
containers) in an antitrust class action against the largest
domestic manufacturers of containerboard.
About the case:
Plaintiffs allege that from at least August 2005 to the present
the defendants conspired to artificially restrict the supply of
containerboard in the United States resulting in inflated prices
for containerboard products.
This case is pending in the Northern District of Illinois before
the Hon. Milton I. Shadur. Plaintiffs filed their
Consolidated Amended Class Action Complaint on November 8, 2010,
and on April 8, 2011 Judge Shadur denied defendants' motion to
dismiss. Discovery is currently underway.
