Drywall Indirect Purchasers Antitrust Litigation Settlement Case History:
Starting in December 2012, indirect purchasers of Wallboard filed lawsuits claiming that the Defendants conspired, in violation of the federal antitrust laws, to raise, fix, maintain or stabilize the price of Wallboard and, to help further this pricefixing conspiracy, abolish the industry’s long-standing practice of limiting price increases for the duration of a construction project through the use of “job quotes.”
Plaintiffs have agreed with both TIN, Inc. and United States Gypsum to settle the lawsuit on a class basis. The proposed settlements are only with TIN and USG, and the lawsuit will continue against the Defendants other than TIN and USG.
The settlement with TIN provides that TIN will pay $1.75 million and cooperate with the Plaintiffs in connection with the claims against the non-settling Defendants. The settlement with USG provides that USG will pay $8.75 million and cooperate with the Plaintiffs in connection with the claims against the non-settling Defendants.
