Welcome to the Aftermarket Automotive Sheet Metal Indirect Purchaser Plaintiff website
Fireman's Fund Insurance Co. v. Jui Li Enterprise Co., Ltd. et al., 2:13-cv-00987 (E.D. Wis.), and National Trucking Financial Reclamation Services, LLC v. Jui Li Enterprise Co., Ltd. et al., 2:14-cv-01061 (E.D. Wis.), which were consolidated with the lead case Fond du Lac Bumper Exchange Inc. v. Jui Li Enterprise Co. Ltd., et al., 2:09- cv-00852 (E.D. Wis.)
A Settlement has been reached with AP Auto Parts Industrial, Ltd., and Cornerstone Auto Parts, LLC ("Settling Defendants") in a class action lawsuit about whether it, together with Tong Yang Industry Co., Ltd., as successor-in-interest to Taiwan Kai Yih Industrial Co., Ltd., TYG Products, L.P., and Gordon Auto Body Parts Co., Ltd. (collectively, "First Settling Defendants") and Jui Li Enterprise Co., Ltd. ("Second Settling Defendant") 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 $50,000 in settlement of 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$40,000 in an escrow account in the United States (the "Settlement Fund").
Each Settlement Class member that submitted a valid Claim Form during the prior settlements with First Settling Defendants will receive a pro rata share of the Net Settlement Fund based on their volume of qualifying AMSM Product purchases as compared to the total volume of all Settlement Class members' qualifying AMSM Product purchases.
