Settlement Structure: Claims Made
Active: OpenCase Summary:
Yazaki Corporation, Denso Korea Corporation, and two groups of related companies have agreed to settle antitrust class actions alleging they conspired to raise or fix prices, rig bids, and allocate the market for direct purchases of fuel senders sold in the US. The complaint alleged that the companies’ conduct violated antitrust laws and caused purchasers to pay more for the fuel senders than they would otherwise have had to pay. A fuel sender is a device in a vehicle’s fuel tank that measures the amount of fuel in the tank.
Under the settlement agreement, Yazaki will pay $220,000 and Denso will pay $100,000.Docket Number:
