Standard Iron Works v. Arcelor Mittal, et al. (U. S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois)

This matter involves several direct and indirect purchaser class action lawsuits alleging over $4 billion in damages, consolidated before Judge James B. Zagel in the Northern District.  The lawsuits allege that major steel manufacturing companies conspired to restrict the supply of steel produced in the United States.  Eimer Stahl represents Gerdau Ameristeel Corporation in every facet of the litigation, including dispositive motions, broad-ranging electronic discovery, expert reports and depositions, and class certification.  We recently secured a settlement with the direct purchaser plaintiffs on significantly favorable terms.
