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
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.
