Arctic Glacier resolves federal antitrust class action litigation involving packaged ice industry

Client(s) Arctic Glacier Inc.

Jones Day defended Arctic Glacier, Inc. against federal antitrust class actions by direct purchasers against several U.S. packaged ice companies, alleging conspiracy to fix prices for packaged ice. The lawsuits were brought following a lengthy investigation by the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, which concluded in 2010 that industry-wide collusion in the packaged ice market did not take place. The litigation was resolved by court-approved settlement in 2011.
