Case Name

Jan Harrison, et al. v. DuPont, et al.
Case No. 5:13-cv-01180-BLF
District Court for the Northern District of California, San Jose Division

Case Summary

The central issue in the lawsuit is Plaintiffs’ allegations that the Defendants violated the antitrust laws by conspiring to fix, raise, maintain, and stabilize the price of titanium dioxide in violation of Section 1 of the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C. and various state antitrust, unfair competition, unjust enrichment, and consumer protection laws. The Defendants deny all of Plaintiffs’ allegations of wrongdoing and assert defenses to Plaintiffs’ claims. In simpler terms, Plaintiffs claim Defendants made paint prices higher by illegally pricing titanium dioxide and Defendants deny they did anything illegal or that paint prices for consumers changed as a result of the price of titanium dioxide changing, up or down.

The Court has made no determination about the strengths or weaknesses of either Plaintiffs’ contentions or the Defendants’ defenses. Instead, to put an end to complex and expensive litigation, Plaintiffs and the Defendants have entered into a Settlement Agreement.
