Draeger Oil, Inc., et al. v. The Uno-Ven Company, et al. (U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin)
After acquiring the refining and marketing assets of The Uno-Ven Company, our client, an oil refiner, terminated all Union 76-brand gasoline franchises throughout a 14-state area. The firm represented the refiner in a class action brought under the Petroleum Marketing Practices Act by a class consisting of over 200 terminated franchisees. The claims were valued around $200 million. After obtaining summary judgment from the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, the firm successfully defended that judgment in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.
