INSIGHT: Defendant Class Actions The Solution to Suing Hundreds of Defendants

November 8, 2018

In most antitrust cases involving coordinated conduct, the question of whom to sue is relatively straightforward. The logical defendants are those who participated in the alleged conspiracy and their relevant affiliates.
