Allegation of Price Fixing Was Inconsistent with Historical Performance

Summary:


Radial chart illustrating representative prices of eggs offered by one
defendant that ranged between free to $2.09 per dozen.

In this class action antitrust matter, three large grocery store chains were accused of fixing the price of eggs in six Southern California counties. Plaintiffs contended that after prices increased in response to restricted supply due to an outbreak of avarian flu, they were improperly sustained thereafter. Specifically, plaintiffs alleged that executives for the three competitors met socially in order to conspire to maintain artificially high prices.
