CINCINNATI - A Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals panel on Jan. 3 reversed summary judgment for defendant milk bottlers in an antitrust case, finding that a factual dispute exists regarding the nature of the alleged conspiracy with milk producers and that the trial court erroneously barred the plaintiffs' geographic market expert (In re: Southeastern Milk Antitrust Litigation; Food Lion, et al. v. Dean Foods Co., et al,, No. 12-5457, 6th Cir.; 2014 U.S. App. LEXIS 66).
