Partial Settlements Achieved in Antitrust Litigation Against Contact Lens Manufacturers

In re: Disposable Contact Lens Antitrust Litigation, 15-md-02626 (M.D. Fla.)

Robins Kaplan serves as court-appointed co-lead counsel on behalf of a class of contact lens purchasers against the four dominant manufacturers and the largest nationwide distributor of contact lenses. The Firm filed one of the first class action complaints alleging that defendants conspired to eliminate discount competition by implementing coordinated price floors, causing prices for contact lenses to dramatically rise while the minimum pricing policies were in place. Partial settlements in the case total over $13 million. Plaintiffs have been granted class certification and defeated defendants’ motions for summary judgment. The case is ongoing before the trial court.
