Miller Law LLC Announces Settlement of $151,250,000 for Purchasers of Certain Products Containing Polyurethane Foam
Aug 10 15
Miller Law LLC announced a settlement of $151,250,000 for purchasers of certain products containing polyurethane foam. A lawsuit known as In re Polyurethane Foam Antitrust Litigation, Case No. 10-MD-2196, is pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio in Toledo. The Settlements have now been reached with the following Defendants: Carpenter Co., FFP Holdings LLC, Future Foam, Inc., FXI Holdings, Inc., Hickory Springs Manufacturing Company, Leggett & Platt, Incorporated, Mohawk Industries, Inc., Vitafoam (Vitafoam Products Canada Limited, and Vitafoam, Inc.), and Woodbridge (Woodbridge Foam Corporation, Woodbridge Sales & Engineering, Inc., and Woodbridge Foam Fabricating, Inc.). Together, these additional settling Defendants will be paying a total of $151,250,000 into the Settlement Fund. Several individuals and businesses brought claims on behalf of a Class of end-user 'indirect' purchasers of products that contain flexible polyurethane foam manufactured or supplied by the Defendants. These products include bedding (for example, mattresses, mattress toppers, or pillows), carpet underlay (also called carpet padding or carpet cushion), and upholstered furniture (for example, a sofa with foam cushions). Plaintiffs claim Defendants engaged in a conspiracy to: increase prices of flexible polyurethane foam and not compete for, or 'allocate,' customers. Plaintiffs contend Defendants violated numerous States' antitrust and consumer protection laws. Defendants deny these claims and deny they are liable to Plaintiffs in any way. Defendants in the nine Settlements will pay a total of $151,250,000. If the Plan of Allocation is approved by the Court, payments will be made to each Claimant from each Settlement pro rata based on the number of valid claims filed and the amounts paid for qualifying products. The Settlement Fund may also be used to pay for the cost to administer the Settlements, attorneys' fees, costs, and expenses, and awards to Class Representative Plaintiffs. Plaintiffs' counsel will request attorneys' fees not to exceed 30% of $151,250,000, plus reimbursement of costs and expenses. The Court will hold a hearing to decide whether to approve the nine proposed Settlements. The hearing will be on DECEMBER 15, 2015, at 10:00 a.m. at the Ashley U.S. Courthouse, 1716 Spielbusch Avenue, Toledo, Ohio 43604. The Court may change the date, time, or location of the hearing.
