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).
The $3.5 million settlement of this lawsuit was finally approved by Judge Beth Labson Freeman on October 22, 2018. It alleged 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 maintained this case on behalf of indirect purchasers of architectural paint (house paint) in the United States.
