Secured $7.2 Million Settlement for Plaintiff Alleging Monopolization of Oncology Services in Southwest Florida
March 17, 2020
County of Monmouth, New Jersey v. Florida Cancer Specialists PL et al., 18-cv-00201 (M.D. Fla.)
For plaintiff Monmouth County, New Jersey, Robins Kaplan secured a settlement of nearly $7.2 million in a class action complaint against a Florida cancer treatment center and its president for alleged monopolization of oncology services in Southwest Florida.
The firm filed suit in March of 2018 against Florida Cancer Specialists PL and its president (“FCS”), alleging that FCS had colluded with a rival, 21st Century Oncology LLC, to allocate markets and monopolize oncology services in Southwest Florida. Plaintiffs alleged that the treatment centers unlawfully agreed that i) FCS would refer radiation oncology patients exclusively to 21st Century, and 21st Century would refer medical oncology patients exclusively to FCS; and ii) FCS would acquire the medical oncology business, and 21st Century the radiation oncology business of a third competitor, thereby allowing FCS and 21st Century to monopolize relevant oncology services submarkets in Southwest Florida.
Plaintiffs negotiated a nearly $7.2 million settlement with FCS which was granted final approval on March 17, 2020.
