Additional Refunds Available from Air Cargo Shipment Surcharge Lawsuit
A U.S. district court recently approved a settlement in which Korean Air and Singapore Airlines agreed to pay over $200 million to settle a lawsuit alleging that they participated in a scheme to fix the price of surcharges included in the cost of airfreight shipping services. Any companies that directly purchased such services for shipments to, from or within the United States from these two or ANY of the other defendants in the lawsuit during the period Jan. 1, 2000, through Sept. 11, 2006, may now file a claim to receive money from this settlement, which is the fourth major settlement in the air cargo surcharge litigation being handled by the Eastern District of New York.
