Transpacific - Price Fixing of Tickets
CPM has reached several settlements in this case, totaling approximately $39 million. This case, pending in the United States District Court in San Francisco, involves a global conspiracy to increase the price charged to people traveling by air between the United States and Asia. The 9th Circuit is holding a hearing on important issues concerning the power of the federal courts to adjudicate price-fixing conduct in the air transportation industry, which CPM will argue in 2017. The case is being handled by Joe Cotchett, Steve Williams, Adam Zapala and team.
