Experience

  • Defending downstream energy company Alon USA Energy Inc., a subsidiary of Delek US, against allegations of price fixing in the California gasoline market. Pending in federal court in the Southern District of California, the cases were brought against multiple major oil refiners by putative classes of direct and indirect gasoline purchasers under the Sherman Antitrust Act and California’s antitrust statute, the Cartwright Act. The plaintiffs allege that California consumers were overcharged at the pump between 2012 and 2015 due to the defendants’ allegedly coordinated refinery shutdowns and other purported actions to restrict the supply of gasoline or create an appearance of a gasoline shortage in California. Persian Gulf Consolidated Antitrust Litigation (S.D.Cal.).
