Diversified Glass Files Anti-Trust Suit Against Glass Manufacturers

In what some industry observers expect will become a large class action suit, Diversified Glass Services Inc. has filed a lawsuit against against Pilkington North America Inc., Nippon Sheet Glass, AGC Group, Asahi Glass Co. Ltd., Saint-Gobain Corp. and Guardian Glass Corp. alleging anti-trust violations. The suit was filed on Friday, January 25, 2008, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York and focuses on energy surcharges and diesel fuel surcharges.

Diversified Glass alleges that the manufacturers "collud[ed] on the use and imposition of so-called energy surcharges to overcharge Plaintiff and other direct purchasers."

Diversified Glass is represented by Andrew Morganti and Peter Safirstein of Milberg Weiss LLP in New York, along with Merrill Davidoff, Eric Cramer and Michael Dell'Angelo of Berger Montague LLP in Philadelphia.
