Broiler Chicken Antitrust Litigation for Opt-Out Plaintiffs

Broiler Chicken Antitrust Litigation for Opt-Out Plaintiffs

Representation of multiple national restaurant chains and a top ten food distributor in an ongoing case against the major producers of chicken in the United States. The chicken manufacturers- who account for more than 90% of all chicken products sold in the country- participated in a decade-long conspiracy to raise the prices of broiler chicken sold nationwide. Bilzinā€™s clients initiated independent opt out actions against the members of the conspiracy for damages sustained as a result of the overcharges they incurred in connection with their purchases of chicken over the conspiracy period.
