Titanium Dioxide Indirect Purchaser Litigation

Jan Harrison, et al. v. E. I. Du Pont De Nemours and Company, et al., Case No. 5:13-cv-01180-BLF (U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California).

This putative class action lawsuit, pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, alleges that United States producers of titanium dioxide conspired to raise the price of this important ingredient, which is used in paints, other coated plastics, paper, and countless other consumer and industrial products. Defendants and their co-conspirators control 100 percent of the United States’ Titanium Dioxide capacity. CGL is maintaining this case on behalf of indirect purchasers, namely retailers and consumers of architectural paint (house paint) in the United States. In June, the court upheld the plaintiffs’ complaint.
