Safelite Glass wins summary judgment in unfair competition action against call center operations

Client(s) Safelite Glass Corp.

Jones Day represented Safelite Glass (now Belron US Inc.) in an unfair competition lawsuit filed in 2002 by Safelite's competitor, Diamond Triumph Auto Glass, attacking its call center operations and seeking tens of millions of dollars. Nearly all claims against Safelite were dismissed in a favorable summary judgment ruling, while Safelite's counterclaims were allowed to proceed, including commercial bribery, Lanham Act unfair competition, and defamation. The case settled on favorable terms thereafter.
