1/11/2010 - AVX Corporation and AVX Limited v. Cabot Corporation
On March 5, 2009, United States District Court Judge Richard G. Stearns ruled in favor of our client, Cabot Corporation, on its motion for summary judgment against AVX Corporation and AVX Limited regarding antitrust allegations of tying in the marketplace for tantalum. The Court’s ruling relied in part on expert testimony provided by Compass Lexecon expert Joseph P. Kalt concerning the relevant market at issue and whether Cabot Corporation’s actions were consistent with the economics of tying. Professor Kalt was supported by Eric Henson and Andrew Lemon of our Tucson and Harvard Square offices. We worked with Brian A. Davis of Choate Hall & Stewart LLP.
