Domestic Drywall Indirect Purchaser Antitrust Settlement

July 22, 2024
2:13-md-02437 US District Court, Eastern District of Pennsylvania


The case is known as In re: Domestic Drywall Antitrust Litigation, MDL No. 2437 and
13-MD-2437. Starting in December 2012, indirect purchasers of gypsum wallboard filed lawsuits claiming that the Defendants conspired, in violation of the federal antitrust laws, to raise, fix, maintain or stabilize the price of gypsum wallboard and, to help effectuate this price-fixing conspiracy, abolish the industry’s long-standing practice of limiting price increases for the duration of a construction project through the use of “job quotes.”


In connection with the TIN and USG settlements, the Court certified identical Settlement Classes composed of all persons or entities that indirectly purchased wallboard for end use and not for resale in the United States that was manufactured or distributed by any of the Defendants or their subsidiaries from January 1, 2012 through November 30, 2014. The settlement recovers money for the benefit of class members located in or making a purchase in or from an entity located in Arizona, Arkansas, California, the District of Columbia, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wisconsin (“Indirect Purchaser State Damages Class”).
