Members of the firm’s antitrust team are defending CargoSprint LLC against an antitrust lawsuit brought by CargoSprint’s competitor, PayCargo LLC, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. On December 10, 2021, U.S. District Judge Timothy C. Batten, Sr. granted CargoSprint’s motion for summary judgment, which was filed months before the close of discovery. PayCargo’s suit had alleged that CargoSprint imposed a tying arrangement, such that customers were allegedly required to use one of CargoSprint’s products in order to get another. Judge Batten found that the evidence conclusively showed no such tying arrangement existed and, accordingly, dismissed the case.
