Wis.)
On November 8, 2016, the Court entered the Order Granting Representative Plaintiffs' Motion For Final Approval of Class Action Settlement with Jui Li Enterprise Company, Ltd. A copy of this Order can be found by accessing the Court Documents page of this website.
Please be advised that the Court has entered the Order Granting Representative Plaintiff's Motion for Final Approval of Class Action Settlements for the Gordon Settlement and Tong Yang Settlement on January 14, 2016.
Settlements have been reached with Tong Yang Industry Co., Ltd., as successor-in-interest to Taiwan Kai Yih Industrial Co., Ltd., and TYG Products, L.P. (collectively, "Tong Yang Defendants"), Gordon Auto Body Parts Co., Ltd. (the "Gordon Defendant"), and Jui Li Enterprise Company, Ltd. (the "Jui Li Defendant" or together with the Tong Yang Defendants and Gordon Defendants, the "Settling Defendants") in a class action lawsuit. The lawsuit is about whether Settling Defendants, together with Auto Parts Industrial, Ltd. and Cornerstone Auto Parts, LLC (the "Non-Settling Defendants"), violated state and federal antitrust laws and other state laws by agreeing to fix prices and limit the supply of Aftermarket Automotive Sheet Metal ("AMSM") Products.
AMSM Products are defined as any and all aftermarket automotive products made of any kind of sheet metal, including, but not limited to, hoods, doors, bumpers, fenders, bonnets, floor panels, trunk assemblies, trunk lids, tailgates, roof panels, and reinforcement parts. Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts are not aftermarket automotive products and therefore are not included.
Settling Defendants have agreed to pay USD $9.85 million collectively to settle the claims against them. Due to a requirement of Taiwan law that applies to the fund because it will originate from a Taiwan bank account, twenty percent will be withheld as taxes, resulting in a total deposit in the amount of USD$7.88 million in an escrow account in the United States (the "Settlement Fund").
This Settlement Fund will be established for all third-party payors who indirectly paid or reimbursed others for the purchase of AMSM Products for end use and not sale or resale, purchased anywhere in the United States between January 1, 2003 and September 7, 2015 ("Settlement Class members").
