Hershey Mars Nestle Price Fixing

Legal Affairs writer Peter Geier, Policy and Regulatory Report, reports on Steve D. Shadowen's oral argument in the chocolate in a price-fixing case:

Steve D. Shadowen of Hilliard & Shadowen, of Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, representing the plaintiffs’ class of direct purchasers, disparaged the defendants’ purported “mere interdependence” as a “conscious commitment” to a common (and illegal) scheme that had been shown to work in Canada.  “This knowledge did not stay in Canada,” Shadowen said. “It shaped the thinking of US executives. At a minimum, they were aware of it; at a maximum, they were directing it.”
