Posted by : Matthew Wild | On : March 18, 2013

On March 14, 2013, a jury in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York awarded $54,100,000 to an antitrust plaintiff class.  The jury found that the Chinese Vitamin C manufacturers engaged in price-fixing.  This verdict demonstrates that there is no need for a criminal prosecution for a successful civil suit.  This was the first case in which Chinese companies have been held liable for violating the United States antitrust laws.
