Law360, New York (June 06, 2013, 7:49 PM ET) ‐‐ A Michigan federal judge on Thursday trimmed some indirect purchaser claims from multidistrict litigation accusing auto parts makers of bid‐rigging and price‐fixing on automotive wire harnesses, but refused to toss federal antitrust claims lodged by a group of direct purchasers of the products.

U.S. District Judge Marianne Batani partially granted and partially denied a motion to dismiss allegations lodged by two putative classes of indirect wire‐harness purchasers — one comprising auto dealers, another comprising consumers — throwing out certain state law claims against several auto parts companies, including Yazaki Corp., Denso Corp. and Nippon Seiki Co. Ltd.
