High Fructose Corn Syrup Litigation
MDL. No. 1087, Master File No. 95-1477
United States District Court for the Central District of Illinois
Berger & Montague, as one of three Co-Lead
Counsel, recovered settlements totaling $531 million on behalf of a
class of direct purchasers of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), the
principal sweetener used in non-diet sodas as well as in many
bakery and dairy products.
The settlements followed nine years of hard-fought
litigation. The parties agreed to settle the case only weeks before
the scheduled start of trial.
