eBay Auction Sellers' Bid For Class Certification Rejected


On March 4, 2010, Judge Jeremy Fogel of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California granted summary judgment in favor of eBay in a putative antitrust class action lawsuit brought by online auction sellers in 2007. See In re eBay Seller Antitrust Litigation, No. 07-1882 N.D. Cal., No. C 07-01882 JF (RS) (2008), Order Granting Defendant’s Motion For Summary Judgment And Denying As Moot Plaintiffs’ Motion For Class Certification (Dkt. # 577), available at 2010 WL 760433 (“eBay”). As explained below, the court held that plaintiffs’ allegations fail because plaintiff and its expert failed to proffer any evidence that eBay’s alleged anticompetitive acts caused plaintiffs any injury compensable under the antitrust laws.
