Jury Orders Dow Chemical Co To Pay $400 Million In Price-Fixing Case-Reuters
Wednesday, 20 Feb 2013 10:20am EST 

Reuters reported that a federal jury has ordered Dow Chemical Co to pay $400 million in a price-fixing case involving chemicals used to make foam products in cars, furniture and packaging, according to court documents. Dow was one of several chemical company defendants named in a class action lawsuit alleging a conspiracy to fix urethane chemical prices, but it was the only defendant not to settle. Last month, it went to trial in a federal court in Kansas City. The plaintiffs, purchasers of urethane chemicals, had sought more than $1 billion in damages from Dow. If the $400 million verdict is approved by the judge overseeing the case, it could be tripled under federal antitrust law. David Bernick, an attorney for Dow, said that the Company would seek to dismiss the lawsuit in a post-trial motion. Separately, Dow said in a statement late on February 20, 2013, that it was disappointed the jury found price fixing conduct during part of the time frame at issue, and that it continues to deny those allegations. The plaintiffs had sought damages for a five-year conspiracy, but the jury did not find Dow liable for the full five years, he said.  Full Article
