Cimino, et al. v Headway Technologies, Inc, et al.
United States District Court for the Southern District of New York

On August 8, 2019, Keller Rohrback and co-counsel, Handley Farah & Anderson, filed a class action complaint against many manufacturers of hard disk drive (“HDD”) suspension assemblies alleging a conspiracy – on a global scale – to fix prices and allocate market shares. The HDD suspension assembly is a critical component for the operation and performance of electronic devices, in particular of Hard Disk Drives (both internal and external). HDD suspension assemblies are included in a vast array of devices, including computers, gaming systems, printers and photocopy machines.
The impact of the conspiracy had a direct and substantial impact on American consumers by raising the price paid for any equipment containing a HDD. The Plaintiffs allege violations of the Clayton Act and are asserting claims for actual and exemplary damages under state antitrust, unfair competition, consumer protection and unjust enrichment laws, and seek to recover the amount consumer overpaid for these products as a result of the alleged conspiracy.
