Kansas City, Kansas - Plaintiffs in the Dow Chemical Polyurethane cartel case have hired a top lawyer to help them fight Dow’s attempts to have an earlier verdict struck out.
According to Thompson Reuters, Paul Clement, a potential High Court nominee, and solicitor general under George W. Bush has joined the plaintiffs' team. Plaintiffs want the court to uphold a $400m priced fixing verdict against Dow Chemical.
As reported in Urethanes Technology International, Dow is appealing against that judgement and has asked US District Court Judge John Lungstrum to give it a new trial or judge in its favour. Dow is also appealing on grounds that the class action which bought the case was not properly composed.
