At the end of June, additional settlements totaling $96 million were reached with five additional defendants in the ISDAfix antitrust class action litigation – read our case update here. A deadline of December 23, 2018 has been set for filing a claim in this second settlement pool.
As mentioned in our case spotlight (link), this class action settlement resolves allegations that Defendants engaged in anticompetitive acts, manipulating the ISDAfix rates, the benchmark used to set the terms for swap transactions between Jan. 1, 2006 and Jan. 31, 2014.
The deadline for the previous settlement amount of $408 million was July 16, 2018 – however Class Counsel may continue to accept claims until October 13, 2018.
With another $550 million to be distributed in the coming months from other settled antitrust class actions and 50+ cases in litigation (click here to request a copy of our antitrust pipeline), fiduciaries should be implementing systems for filing claims in these matters. While claim filing in this area can be challenging, FRT has developed efficient processes to maximize recoveries while minimizing client efforts.
