More Xerox Woes

On November 15, federal district court judge Stefan Underhill denied a motion to dimiss a suit brought by a Middletown, Conn. independent service provider against Xerox, alleging that the photocopier company's unilateral refusal to provide parts violated the Sherman Act.   While the Federal Circuit upheld the company's refusal to deal in order to protect its intellectual property rights in 2000, the district court in Connecticut found an adequate basis for a complaint based on the allegations that "Xerox suddenly stopped making parts available, and "for no apparent reason," delayed shipping, raised prices on other parts and allegedly refused to sell copiers to customers who wished to use CCS for servicing." More from this article in the Texas Lawyer.
