The Ninth Circuit Denies Defendants Request to Appeal Class Certification in SRAM Price-Fixing Case

February 16, 2010

Zelle Hofmann attorneys have been appointed lead class counsel representing plaintiff indirect purchasers of "static random access memory" (SRAM), a memory device used in such equipment as cell phones and computers.  These purchasers allege that between 1996 and 2006, defendant manufacturers of SRAM conspired to fix and maintain artificially high prices for SRAM.  On November 25, 2009, the United States District Court for the Northern District of California granted a motion by plaintiffs seeking to certify a nationwide injunctive class and 27 separate statewide classes of indirect purchasers of SRAM. On February 10, 2010 the Ninth Circuit, in a per curiam opinion, denied defendants' petition for permission to appeal the District Court's order.
