Safelite wins dismissal of antitrust, unfair competition, and tort claims

Clients Safelite Solutions LLC

Jones Day successfully defended Safelite Solutions LLC in a lawsuit filed in New York Supreme Court by an automobile glass replacement and repair shop against Safelite, two third party administrators, and thirteen insurance companies for allegedly conspiring to set and enforce prices for automobile glass repair and replacement. The plaintiff asserted antitrust, unfair competition, deceptive practices (New York General Business Law Section 349), fraud, and tortious interference claims against Safelite and the third party administrators. After removing the action to the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, Safelite successfully moved to dismiss all the claims asserted against it and the third party administrators, and the Court declined to grant the plaintiff leave to further amend the complaint.
