The Joseph Saveri Law Firm serves as counsel for over 400 auto dealerships in an antitrust case against Carfax for its alleged use of unlawful exclusive dealing contracts. Plaintiffs allege that Carfax has entered exclusive dealing arrangements with various auto manufacturers and leading websites that provide classified listings for used car sales. Plaintiffs allege that Carfax’s anticompetitive scheme has restricted competition in the market for vehicle history reports and led to higher prices and a lower quality product.
The case is currently pending in the District Court for the Southern District of New York.
On January 31, 2014, Carfax filed a motion to dismiss Plaintiffs’ claims.
On September 29, 2014, the Court issued an Order, largely denying Carfax’s motion. Plaintiffs may proceed with their claims under Sections 1 and 2 of the Sherman Act against Carfax.
