SRKW acted as Lead Counsel in In re Mercedes-Benz Antitrust Litigation (D.N.J.), a price-fixing class action against Mercedes-Benz U.S.A. and its New York tri-state area dealers. The case settled for $17.5 million, which compensates the vast majority of class members at 140% of their damages. At a May 18, 2009 hearing, U.S. District Court Judge William Walls stated: "I think that this is a fitting resolution of what has been a very protracted course of litigation. And I think overall you are to be commended."
