This class action alleged that the defendants unlawfully conspired to fix, increase, and/or maintain prices of oil, air, fuel and transmission filters sold as replacement filters for automobiles, trucks and other vehicles (“Aftermarket Filters”).
Oil, air, fuel and transmission filters are used in nearly every motor vehicle sold in North America and are essential for the performance of motor vehicles. Oil, air, fuel and transmission filters are typically detachable units that require regular replacement.
A settlement has been reached with all defendants totaling $350,000. The deadline for applying to receive settlement benefits has passed and all settlement funds have been distributed.
