GM wins 6th Circuit ruling that dealer action under ADDCA and federal antitrust laws failed to establish standing
Clients General Motors Corporation
Plaintiff sole shareholder and operator of a General Motors dealership filed an action against Jones Day client General Motors Corporation, General Motors Acceptance Corporation, and several other defendants under the Automobile Dealers' Day in Court Act and federal antitrust laws. GM moved to dismiss Caruana's claims for lack of standing, which the district court denied. After oral argument, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals issued an opinion on October 5, 2006, holding that Caruana failed to establish standing to pursue claims under the ADDCA and the federal antitrust laws.
