Freeborn & Peters' Client Sets Precedent with Denial of Class Certification

A Freeborn & Peters litigation team, representing a major service corporation providing linens, uniforms and related products and services, recently won a major victory in an antitrust price fixing case in the Southern District of Illinois (East St. Louis) where the judge denied class certification. Denial of class certification, which is rare in antitrust price fixing cases, should effectively end the case. The court issued a lengthy and detailed written opinion supporting the judge's decision denying class certification. This opinion will be strong precedent in other antitrust class action cases.
