Crowell Wins Dismissal of DuPont Monopolization Lawsuit
Apr.09.2012 — Global Competition Review
The U.S. District Court for Eastern Virginia found that Kolon Industries failed to prove that Crowell & Moring client DuPont monopolized the market for the material, or used its contracts with customers to shut out rivals. Crowell & Moring chairman and Antitrust Group partner Kent A. Gardiner told Global Competition Review, "Discovery proved that not a single customer complained about business practices of DuPont, or sided with Kolon in support of its claims. The court rightly found that DuPont neither was a monopolist in the market nor engaged in any anti-competitive conduct."
