Class Action Antitrust Suit In Auto Industry

The Auto Industry web site is reporting on a class action suit against original equipment manufacturers and part distributors in the automobile industry under the Robinson-Patman Act. The suit alleges that components manufacturers are being forced to sell their products and product lines to large corporate retailers at 50% of the price at which they are selling the same products to independent competitors. Plaintiffs seek to use the "product lines" they purchased as proof of the required "product markets" in their antitrust suit.
