Covington Prevails for Dairy Processor in Vermont Class Action

August 31, 2010

WASHINGTON, DC, August 31, 2010 — The U.S. District Court for the District of Vermont has ruled in favor of HP Hood, the second largest dairy processor in the Northeast, in a class action antitrust lawsuit alleging a restraint of trade in the dairy industry. In a 41-page decision issued August 30, federal district judge Christina Reiss granted HP Hood’s motion to dismiss all claims, agreeing that the allegations failed to make out an antitrust violation by the company. The court denied the other defendants’ motions to dismiss.

Covington & Burling LLP represented HP Hood in the litigation. The Covington litigation team was led by partners Steve Rosenbaum and James Dean with associate Jeff Lerner. All are based in the firm’s Washington office.
