RECENT LITIGATION HIGHLIGHTS

Associated Wholesale Grocers, Inc., et al. v. United Egg Producers, et al. David represents Associated Wholesale Grocers, Inc., and local grocery stores in an antitrust lawsuit against numerous egg suppliers and egg industry trade groups for artificially inflating egg prices. The lawsuit alleges that defendants engaged in a conspiracy designed to increase the price of eggs in violation of the Kansas Restraint of Trade Act. To date, David has helped secure favorable settlements with more than half of the egg supplier defendants. After nearly four years of litigation, Stueve Siegel Hanson successfully resolved this litigation in 2014.

Plubell, et al. v. Merck & Co., Inc. David helped prosecute a Missouri statewide class action on behalf of all Missouri purchasers of Vioxx, the NSAID pain reliever that Merck pulled off the market after the FDA identified serious risks and misleading sales practices. Defendants attempted to remove the case to the Federal District Court for the Western District of Missouri under CAFA. SSH argued and won in the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals the affirmation of the trial court's remand to state court. The case was certified as a class action. In October 2012, a settlement was reached. Under the settlement terms, qualifying Missouri consumers of Vioxx may be reimbursed in full for their Vioxx purchases. David and SSH were recognized by Missouri Lawyers Weekly as securing the Top Plaintiff Win in 2013 by virtue of this $220 million settlement for Missouri consumers.

In re: Bank of America Wage and Hour Employment Practices Litigation. David helped prosecute this multi-district litigation that brought together various wage and hour claims against Bank of America on behalf of current and former non-exempt retail-branch and call-center employees who sought back pay for unpaid wages and overtime pay. Recently, SSH successfully negotiated a settlement on behalf of our clients.
