Our firm obtains relevant Supreme Court judgment dismissing the first anti-trust class action in Argentina
06 March 2015

 On February 10th, 2015, the National Supreme Court ruled against a nationwide class action filed by a consumers’ association against several concrete manufacturers and the manufacturer’s association on the grounds of an alleged case of price fixing. The Court ruled that the class action proceeding requires a number of requirements that were not met by the plaintiff, such as proper description of the class, proof that the class members are in the same situation, as well as evidence that there is a relevant number of people affected by the acts of the defendants. Moreover, the Supreme Court highlighted that due to the fact that there was no direct relationship between the manufacturers and the consumers and since consumers usually buy this kind of products from retailers, it is not possible to consider that all of the former were affected in the same way. Thus, single adjudication of the controversy was not possible. Our Class Action and Complex Litigation team acted on behalf of one of the defendants.
