Wolf Haldenstein Obtains $31 Million Settlement for Indirect Purchasers of Keurig Single Serve Coffee Cups (“K-Cups”)

Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP is pleased to announce the settlement of the antitrust litigation on behalf of consumers of Keurig K-Cup Portion Packs obtained from persons other than Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. On December 16, 2020, a United States District Judge for the Southern District of New York preliminarily approved the $31 million settlement resolving consumer antitrust claims that the single-server brewer machine maker Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. violated federal and state antitrust laws by engaging in anticompetitive practices that had the effect of excluding competing coffee product sellers from the market causing the indirect purchasers to be overcharged for coffeemaker cups or pods. The settlement is on behalf of all purchasers Keurig K-Cup Portion Packs from persons other than Keurig and not for the purpose of resale, during the period September 7, 2010 to August 14, 2020 (except for claims under Mississippi law—which are for purchases during the period from March 14, 2011, to August 14, 2020, and Rhode Island law—which are for purchases from July 15, 2013, to August 14, 2020).

Wolf Haldenstein serves as co-lead counsel for the consumers in the litigation.
