Automotive Parts Occupant Safety Systems Direct Purchasers Settlement

July 22, 2024
2:12-md-02311 US District Court Eastern Michigan Southern Division


In 2012, class action lawsuits were filed against Defendants by Plaintiffs, on behalf of direct purchasers of Occupant Safety Systems. Plaintiffs allege that Defendants conspired to suppress and eliminate competition for Occupant Safety Systems by agreeing to fix prices, rig bids and allocate the supply of Occupant Safety Systems in violation of federal antitrust laws. Therefore, direct purchasers of Occupant Safety Systems in the United States overpaid for those products. The Settling Defendants deny the allegations, but agreed to settle to avoid further litigation. The Court has not ruled on the Plaintiffs’ claims or Defendants’ defenses. This is a partial settlement with Toyoda Gosei and Tokai Rika only.


Anyone that purchased Occupant Safety Systems in the United States directly from any defendant company between January 1, 2003 and February 25, 2015 may be eligible. “Occupant Safety Systems” are considered seat belts, airbags, steering wheels or steering systems, safety electronic systems, and related parts and components.
