SIB is assisting eligible clients with filing claims in a class action settlement related to Commercial Broilers.
What is the case?
This lawsuit alleges that that the Defendants (below) and their co-conspirators conspired to fix, raise, maintain, and stabilize the price of Broilers, beginning at least as early as January 1, 2008, and that their principal method for doing this was to coordinate their output and limit production, with the intent and expected result of increasing prices of Broilers in the United States, in violation of federal antitrust laws.
Who is affected?
All persons (including businesses and companies) who indirectly purchased broilers from the Defendants or the Co-Conspirators for their own use in commercial food preparation, including purchasers such as hospitals, nursing homes and schools, from January 1, 2008 to July 31, 2019 (excluding all federal or state governmental entities) are considered to be class members.
What is the filing deadline?
To be determined. (When we get an update, we will post it here.)
