Defended Supervalu in Long-Running Antitrust Litigation

In re Wholesale Grocery Products Antitrust Litigation, 09-md-02090 (D. Minn.)

Robins Kaplan defended grocery wholesaler Supervalu Inc. in a putative antitrust class action by grocery retailers in 13 states alleging that Supervalu and another wholesaler, C&S Wholesale Grocers, Inc., conspired to allocate territories and customers in the Midwest and New England in violation of the Sherman Act. This significant multidistrict litigation began in 2008 and involved five separate Eighth Circuit appeals and a petition for certiorari to the U.S. Supreme Court. The case was ultimately resolved to the benefit of all parties.
