Lawsuit Alleges 1-800 Contacts Cut Deals to Block Consumers from Seeing Competitors' Ads

1-800 Contacts Inc. is facing a new legal challenge from eight lawsuits now consolidated into one case that alleges the company illegally collaborated with other online lens sellers to cause consumers to pay higher prices. The proposed class action lawsuit, filed in federal court in Salt Lake City, seeks to enjoin 1-800 Contacts and other companies from violations of antitrust law and asks for triple damages for consumers. The new lawsuit alleges that 1-800 Contacts entered into agreements with at least 13 competitors. Together the companies control about 80% of the online retail market for contact lenses, while 1-800 Contacts alone captures 50% of the sales.
