Case Summary: 

A settlement has been reached with the final defendants in an antitrust case alleging that manufacturers conspired to manipulate the price of drywall and to eliminate the longstanding practice of limiting price rises during a construction project through the use of “job quotes.” Previously, settlements were reached with TIN, USG, and LaFarge, and have been approved. This settlement is with the remaining defendants, including NGC, American Gypsum, and PABCO and totals $1,250,000. If it is approved, the total settlement fund will be just under $17 million.
