DuPont Titanium Paint Price-Fixing Settlement Notes

  • Jan Harrison, et al. v. DuPont, et al.,
  • Case No. 5:13-cv-01180-BLF
  • Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California

A group of plaintiffs across the country brought this class action lawsuit against Dupont, Huntsman, Kronos, and Millennium Inorganic Chemicals alleging the companies unlawfully engaged in a price-fixing scheme for Titanium Dioxide, a primary ingredient in Architectural Paint. Architectural paint includes any paint you would have used to paint something around your home or business, such as walls, floors, ceilings, or some other surfaces inside or outside.

According to court documents, the defendants are accused of violating antitrust laws and conspiring to make the price of Titanium Dioxide higher in order to restrain competition. These actions resulted in consumers paying more than they should have for Architectural Paint products.

DuPont and the other named defendants deny they did anything illegal or that paint prices for consumers changed as a result of the price of titanium dioxide changing, up or down, but agreed to settle the case for $3.5 million. Complete details about the case and settlement can be found on the Titanium Paint Price-Fixing Settlement website.

The DuPont Titanium Paint Price-Fixing class action settlement was granted preliminary approval on December 13, 2017.

Containerboard Price-Fixing Scheme Settlement Notes

  • Kleen Products LLC, et al. v. International Paper Co., et al.
  • Case No. 1:10-cv-05711
  • Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division.

Plaintiffs in this class action lawsuit allege that  International Paper, Temple-Inland, Weyerhaeuser, WestRock, Georgia-Pacific, Packaging Corporation of America, and Cascades Canada engaged in a scheme to fix the prices of containerboard products. This alleged price-fixing scheme drove up the prices of containerboard products, causing direct purchasers to pay more than they would have in a competitive market. Containerboard products include linerboard, corrugated medium, rollstock corrugated sheets and corrugated products such as displays, boxes, and containers.

Both International Paper Company, Temple Island, and Weyerhaeuser have agreed to pony up $354 million. The settlement was granted final approval on October 17, 2017, but is subject to a contingent and time-limited provision and could be reduced to $236 million. The Court granted summary judgment in favor of Georgia Pacific and the plaintiffs in this case have 30 days to appeal that decision.

Packaging Corporation of America, and Cascades Canada already reached a settlement for $17.6 million and $4.8 million, respectively. At this time, no settlement funds have been dispersed.

Details about the litigation, settlement, and other related documents are available on the Containerboard Products Price-Fixing Scheme Settlement website.

Class members who wish to exclude themselves or object to the terms of the Containerboard Products Price-Fixing Scheme Settlement must do so by March 2, 2018. Class members who wish to submit a claim for payment must do so by May 1, 2018.
