On August 21, 2009, Judge John Gleeson of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York overruled a magistrate judge’s recommendation to dismiss antitrust and other claims asserted in a multi-district putative class action against domestic and foreign airlines that provide airfreight-shipping services. See In Re Air Cargo Shipping Services Antitrust Litigation, 06-MD-1775 (JG) (VVP) (MDL No. 1775) (the “Opinion”).
