O’Melveny’s Representation of Defendant in Potash Price-Fixing Suit Reported in Law360

July 06, 2012

The July 5, 2012, Law360 article “Potash Cos. Face Dim Prospects Of High Court Antitrust Review,” provided an update in a price-fixing case between potash producers and buyers. Law360 reports the “a group of potash producers from Canada, Russia and Belarus urged the Seventh Circuit on Tuesday to stay its recent decision reviving the suit by potash buyers while the defendants lodge a certiorari petition with the Supreme Court. The defendants plan to focus on the broader definition the appeals court adopted for certain exceptions to the Foreign Trade Antitrust Improvements Act.” O’Melveny & Myers LLP is representing one of the defendants, Agrium Inc., in this matter.


The case is Minn-Chem Inc. et al. v. Agrium Inc. et al., case number 10-01712, in the US Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.
