Northeast Dairy Farmer Antitrust Litigation Settlement with DFA/DMS Case History:
The lawsuit claims that Defendants (including previous Defendant Dean Foods and other co-conspirators) unlawfully conspired to monopolize and to eliminate competition for the marketing, sale, and purchase of raw Grade A milk in the Northeast and thereby suppressed prices lower than they would have been in a competitive market. This lawsuit seeks to stop Defendants from engaging in the alleged unlawful conduct, to prohibit practices found to be unlawful, and to recover damages for the illegally suppressed prices for raw Grade A milk. The Defendants deny that they did anything wrong or that they acted in a manner that harmed dairy farmers. There has not yet been a determination as to whether Plaintiffs’ claims are correct or Defendants have done anything wrong.
